Isco is reportedly set to now terminate his contract with Sevilla and become a free agent, amid speculation Wolves could make a move for the midfielder.
In recent days, Wolves have been linked with a potential move for the former Real Madrid man.
Isco reportedly had a falling out with sporting director Monchi recently.
There have been suggestions that his exit from the club is imminent.
Last week, he was said to have left a training session after 10 minutes due to experiencing discomfort in his ankle.
But some Spanish publications were not buying that, as the player not limping as he left the training session.
One of the main reasons Isco made the move to Sevilla in the summer was because of Julen Lopetegui. The pair previously worked together at Real Madrid and the Spanish national team.
So there have been reports linking Isco with Wolves, with some suggesting he would like to link back up with his old manager.
If Wolves were wanting to bring Isco to Molineux, then it looks like they would not have to pay Sevilla a transfer fee.
That’s because Marca have reported this afternoon that club and player are working to terminate his contract. “It’s now over,” he says.
He will become a free agent in the coming days, leaving other clubs free to approach him.
It is likely speculation will increase about a move to Wolves for Isco because of that link with Lopetegui.
It’s actually a no-brainer for Wolves to sign Isco as a free agent
This is a big development.
Clearly the relationship has soured to the point where Sevilla aren’t even interested in getting a fee for him.
They just want him off the books, and it will be interesting now to see if Wolves come calling.
Lopetegui should surely give his old playmaker a ring.
Although someone like him wouldn’t be a priority, Wolves actually don’t have a natural number 10.
When Wolves have gone 4-2-3-1 this season, one of Matheus Nunes or Daniel Podence has slotted in as the attacking midfielder. Both are better used in other roles.
Isco plays there, and has huge experience and technical quality.
He may no longer be the same player he was a few years ago. But he surely still has plenty to offer at the age of 30.
