Tottenham have been mooted as potential suitors for Real Madrid’s Isco, and could well be considering a move even more given the ramifications of his leaving the Champions League winners.
According to Spanish radio station Cope (via talkSport), Zinedine Zidane will move for Chelsea’s main man Eden Hazard as a replacement should he ship both Isco and playmaker James Rodriguez.
Spurs will, according to the report, have to battle Italian giants Juventus over any deal for Spain international Isco, whilst Ligue 1 leaders Monaco are in the running for Rodriguez.
Hazard has been in renewed form for Antonio Conte this season. After a dire term last campaign, which saw the Blues finish tenth in the Premier League, the Belgium international has bagged 11 goals and five assists in all competitions.
The former Lille man was at his dangerous and flamboyant best on Monday night when his 11 second counter attack brought about the first goal in a 2-1 win over West Ham.
