Isco decides when he will respond to Chelsea's offer

Chelsea are tracking Real Madrid's Isco before a possible summer move but they're going to need to await the Spaniard's decision as he sets a clear deadline

Real Madrid star Isco won't make a choice on his future until after Euro 2020.

The Spaniard reportedly has a suggestion from Chelsea but he wants to urge this summer's major competition out of the way before deciding where he will play his football next season.

Isco is prepared to hunt a fresh challenge having fallen down the hierarchy at the Bernabeu.

He was formerly a star during Zinedine Zidane's first spell as manager, but he and Santiago Solari did not see eye to eye which led to suggestions he may move away, reports Eldesmarque.

Chelsea is keen to form up for the lost time within the transfer market has been unable to sign players within the summer.

The Blues have previously expressed an interest within the 27-year-old and are set to reignite that ought to the chance arise.

Frank Lampard has had to form do with the squad he inherited which, despite performing impressively in spells, does have its flaws.

One of those may be a lack of experience - something Isco's arrival could go how to solving. During his six-and-a-half years with Los Blancos, he has made almost 300 appearances and won four Champions League titles.

Eden Hazard, who is now Isco's team-mate within the Real Madrid, left Stamford Bridge within the summer and his sizeable transfer fee remains unspent.

Lampard is looking to recruit across several positions, one among which is within the attack, so Isco could yet be shortlisted.

In the meantime, the Blues boss is seeking a player who can provide competition for leading scorer Tammy Abraham.

The academy graduate has led the road impressively since being given the prospect at the beginning of the season but Lampard's alternatives - Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi - could both depart west London this month.

Lyon's Moussa Dembele, who formerly played for Chelsea's local rivals Fulham, is one among the names linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
