Tottenham have made approaches for Real Madrid pair James Rodriguez and Isco, according to reports.
Spanish outlet AS claim that Tottenham have make an enquiry for Rodriguez after closely monitoring his situation for some time.
But it is said that a deal is unlikely and they have turned their attention to the Colombian playmaker’s team-mate Isco.
The Mirror claimed on Tuesday that the north London side have made an audacious bid for 24-year-old Spain international Isco.
It is reported that Spurs want to sign Isco initially on a season-long loan but with an option to sign him permanently next summer, but Madrid only want to do a loan deal.
The London Evening Standard claimed in August that the Spanish giants are looking for around £65million for Rodriguez.
The Standard reported that Rodriguez’s agent Jorge Mendes told London pair Arsenal and Chelsea that the Colombia international was available to leave Madrid.
Rodriguez, 25, was also attracting interest from Paris Saint-Germain, but it was believed that he wanted a move to the Premier League.
Madrid completed the signing of Isco in 2013 when he moved to the Bernabeu from Malaga for £25million to work under previous manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Isco has been a regular for Real Madrid playing 143 times for the Spanish giants in his three-year stay at the club.
However, he has found himself on the fringes of the first team in the new campaign and he has played just 17 minutes of the country giants opening two matches..
Rodriguez moved to Real Madrid from Monaco in a mega £71million deal in the summer of 2014, after an impressive World Cup tournament with his country.
The 48-time capped Colombia star has appeared in 81 encounters for the Spanish giants during his two-year stay and scored 25 goals.
However, he was often a substitute under Zinedine Zidane in the second half of last season and has been restricted to three appearances off the bench this season.
Rodriguez still has four years left on his current deal at the Bernabeu, but it has become apparent that he is surplus to requirements with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric also competing for spaces in the starting eleven.
