Liverpool and Chelsea will battle it out to secure a deadline day deal for a Real Madrid playmaker, reports in Spain claim.

Don Balon state that the aforementioned duo – as well as Manchester City – are interested in signing Isco.

The report claims that the playmaker is wanted by Antonio Conte to help out Alvaro Morata, who arrived from Real in the summer and has struggled for form recently.

They are not alone however, as Liverpool are apparently willing to spend some of their Philippe Coutinho windfall after his move to Barcelona earlier in the summer.

Jurgen Klopp saw bids rejected for Thomas Lemar and is still yet to find a replacement for Coutinho.

Finally, it is claimed that Pep Guardiola has also submitted a bid for Isco, with Los Blancos holding out for a fee of £90million.

The Premier League leaders were linked with a move for Riyad Mahrez on deadline day, but withdrew because of his price tag.
