Tottenham are Liverpool are set to go head to head in January to sign up Spanish starlet Isco in a cut price deal, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Malaga ace is highly sought after and both Premier League clubs sent scouts to watch the 20-year old who scored a brace against Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League.
Isco still has four years remaining on his current deal; however with the Spanish side reported financial problems it is believed that should a club meet the player’s £16m buyout clause that Malaga may well be tempted to cash in.
Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini is under no illusions that it will be difficult to keep hold of Isco; a player who has been described as having limitless potential:
“He is a player who has a great future. Nobody knows what his limit is.”
Both Tottenham and Liverpool are desperate for a new striker in January, given that both clubs only have two recognised strikers within their respective squads.
