,andare battling formidfielder Isco. The Spain international faces an uncertain future at the Bernabeu after a mixed campaign under Zinedine Zidane.

According toEl Desmarque, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is looking to raise funds ahead of a move for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe.

Isco has emerged as an asset to sell because a host of clubs are interested in his signature.

Arsenal are one of three Premier League clubs reported to have expressed an interest ahead of the summer transfer window.

Chelsea have been frequently linked with a move for the 27-year-old by the Spanish press.

Frank Lampard is reportedly a fan and believes he is capable of starring in the Premier League.

It would be surprising to see Lampard add another attacking midfielder to his squad, however.

Chelsea have agreed a £33.3million (€40m) deal with Ajax for playmaker Hakim Ziyech ahead of the summer while Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley are already on the club’s books.

Manchester City are the final top-flight team eyeing Isco. Pep Guardiola is expected to revamp his squad as a result of their less-than-impressive Premier League title defence.

PSG are also in the running so he could be used in part-exchange for Mbappe, who would likely cost more than the world-record £200m it took the Ligue 1 outfit to lure Neymar from Barcelona in 2017.

El Desmarqueclaim Isco is likely to be on the move to England, however.

The former Malaga man has been at the Bernabeu since 2013. He has enjoyed a trophy-laden career at the club, scooping four Champions League titles and one La Liga crown.

A haul of 50 goals in 297 appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid represents a decent return for an attacking midfielder. He is under contract until 2022.
