Liverpool FC join race to sign Malaga CF starlet Isco - report

Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign highly-rated Malaga youngster Isco.

Isco was linked with Manchester United during the summer, while reports had suggested Arsenal and Tottenham were both showing interest in the 20-year-old shortly before the transfer window closed at the end of last month.

But according to AS, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is keen on signing the Spaniard, full name Francisco Roman Alarcon Suarez, as well as Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera, who is seen as a possible long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard.

Isco is understood to have a buy-out clause set at around €20million, and during the summer it was thought he may have been available for considerably less should Malaga decide they needed to cash in to ease their financial problems.

But clubs showing interest are also aware that the player is likely to be in high demand next summer, especially if he continues to impress in the Champions League this season.

The starlet recently insisted he is happy at Malaga, but admitted he would have no choice but to find a new club if the cash-strapped La Liga outfit decided they wanted or needed to sell.

"My intention is to stay, but if the club decide that I have to go, I'll have no choice," he said shortly before the summer transfer window closed.
