Malaga Want Liverpool To Pay More For Isco

Liverpool has been dealt a blow in their chase for Spain starlet Isco. Interest in him has been increasing after his impressive start to the season and Malaga are keen to discuss a new contract in response to him being linked with a move to Anfield, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Liverpool was reportedly leading the race to sign him, but Manchester City has since been credited with an interest and Malaga has, according to the report, responded by attempting to agree a new contract with the 20-year-old in order to increase his value.

Isco’s current deal reportedly includes a buy-out clause worth €21million and Malaga has made it a priority to renegotiate the deal before January, so that interest from Brendan Rodgers can be converted into a more lucrative deal.

Liverpool’s interest could be to do with the striking problems they’ve been having in the early stages of the season, as Isco would provide greater creativity in and around the area. Isco’s improvement could have a lot to do with Santo Cazorla’s move to Arsenal, which has allowed the youngster more playing time and a more prominent role in the side.
