Isco would reportedly be delighted to reunite with Julen Lopetegui, who has reportedly requested for him to be signed by Wolves.
The midfielder is out of favour at Sevilla.
The club are looking to offload him in January, as he does not fit into Jorge Sampaoli’s plans.
It was reported recently that there was a falling out between Isco and sporting director Monchi.
And earlier this week, it was suggested that Isco had departed a training session after just 10 minutes. The reason given was that he was feeling discomfort in his ankle, but some Spanish publications cast doubt on that because he was not limping.
Isco was signed by Sevilla in the summer, with Lopetegui playing a key role in the deal.
The 56-year-old had previously worked with him at Real Madrid and the Spanish national team.
AS are now reporting that Lopetegui has requested Wolves officials to sign Isco next month.
And the publication add that the 30-year-old would be ‘delighted’ to work with him again.
There is still no word on what kind of fee Sevilla would be looking for.
The player signed a two-year deal in the summer. Given the situation now with him being out of favour and Sevilla wanting to sell, it’s likely he wouldn’t break the bank.
An interesting update on Isco situation, as Julen Lopetegui requests for midfielder to be signed and star wants to reunite
This is quite the claim from AS.
Seemingly Lopetegui would like to work with Isco once again, and the feeling looks to be mutual.
It will be very interesting to see how this situation develops now.
It’s clear something has gone wrong at Sevilla, with Sampaoli not selecting him for recent friendly matches against Monaco and Benfica.
It would be quite the sight to see him in a Wolves shirt. Isco has had a fantastic career in Spain, and has won five Champions League titles. He’s also a three-time La Liga champion.
A few years ago, he was one of the best attacking midfielders in the world.
His level is not what it used to be, but he would undoubtedly be a very high-profile signing.
