Bundesliga clubs Union Berlin and RB Leipzig are set for a transfer battle for free agent Isco, as per Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg.
Union Berlin were rumoured to have made an enquiry about the Spaniard, while Leipzig have also joined the race recently.
Leipzig have identified the former Real Madrid star as a replacement for his compatriot Dani Olmo, who has sustained a severe injury.
Union president Dirk Zingler recently commented about the speculation regarding Isco, stating that the club was honoured to get linked to a player like the Spaniard.
Isco joined Sevilla last summer as a free agent after years of being a fringe figure at Real Madrid.
However, his time at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan was short-lived, as he was released from his contract last month in the wake of a rift with sporting director Monchi.
Isco has since been linked with a move to clubs like Wolverhampton Wanderers and Salernitana, but Bundesliga appears to be his next destination.
Union and Leipzig – second and third in the table respectively – are in contention for the Bundesliga title and Isco’s addition would be of more value to them for the remainder of the season.
Isco may have been dormant over the past few years, but he has some years left in his prime and is eager to revive his plummeting career.
The 30-year-old was regarded as one of the finest playmakers in Europe at his zenith during his spell at Santiago Bernabeu.
