EVERTON are reportedly interested in signing former Real Madrid star Isco on a free transfer.
The Spaniard, 30, looked set to join Union Berlin on deadline day before the deal collapsed in the final hours of the January window.
As a result, the forward is still searching for a new club after leaving Sevilla in December.
Isco penned a two-year deal with the LaLiga side in the summer, only to see it ripped up four months later following one goal in 19 appearances.
According to The Times, Everton are now lining up a possible move for Isco as Sean Dyche searches for additions to his squad.
The Toffees lost Anthony Gordon in January as he joined Newcastle for £45million.
The club then failed to secure a number of attacking targets including the likes of Arnaut Danjuma, Kamaldeen Sulemana, Ismaila Sarr, Odsonne Edouard and Jean-Philippe Mateta.
And Nottingham Forest are set to beat them to former Swansea and West Ham man Andre Ayew.

But free agent Isco could go some way to filling the void left by Gordon.
Isco contributed 53 goals and 57 assists in 353 games during his time at Real Madrid.

He has also racked up 38 caps for the Spain national team, scoring 12 goals.
Meanwhile, Everton are desperately trying to avoid being relegated for the first time since 1951.
