Chelsea are again being linked with a move for Malaga midfielder Isco. The Daily Mail says Lucas Piazon's loan move has already triggered speculation that the London club may be using him as a tactical move in their long-term quest to sign Spanish playmaker Isco from Malaga.

Isco, 20, is also wanted by former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid. The Spanish champions recently bid around £13m for the midfielder.

He has been a key figure in Malaga's qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League and their form in the league, which sees them sit fifth.
