Everton unlikely to sign former Real Madrid star Isco

Sevilla have agreed a deal to sign free agent Isco

Everton are unlikely to sign Spanish midfielder Isco on a free transfer, according to the Independent

The Toffees reportedly considered a move for the former Real Madrid star but doubt whether he has the physical profile needed to thrive in the English top flight. 

Isco has been a free agent since mutually terminating his contract with Sevilla in December last year. 

He looked very close to joining Union Berlin last month, but a deal didn’t materialise. 

Everton endured a highly disappointing January transfer window as they failed to add a single player to their ranks. 

The Merseyside club were close to landing Arnaut Danjuma after striking a deal with Villarreal. But in a dramatic twist, the attacker joined Tottenham Hotspur.

They also targeted a host of other forwards in January, only to fail in their attempts.

Everton were reportedly ready to spend a considerable transfer fee for Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher. But the 22-year-old made it clear he wasn’t interested in a move to Goodison Park. 

Everton also agreed a fee for Kamaldeen Sulemana, but the Ghana international preferred to join Southampton. 

Premier League survival unlikely for Everton

The Toffees lost Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United in a deal worth up to £45 million in January.

However, they failed to reinvest that money by landing a new forward.  

Bournemouth, Leeds United, Southampton, Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton Wanderers have all added new recruits to their ranks in their bid to beat the drop. 

Sean Dyche is a top manager, but the task of keeping Everton in the Premier League looks beyond him.
