Paris Saint-Germain are ready to step up their interest in Malaga star Isco, according to Goal.com.
The young Spaniard is considered one of the hottest talents in European football and starred in his side's run to the Champions League quarter-final this term.
A host of leading clubs have been linked with a move for Isco - including Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Liverpool.
The 21-year-old has €35 million release-clause written into his contract - something Goal.com report PSG are willing to activate in order to beat their rivals to the punch this summer.
Scouts from the Ligue 1 club watched Isco in action during Malaga's 2-1 win over Granada - with a potential bid to follow in the coming weeks.
News of PSG's potential interest will come as a blow to Isco's Premier League suitors.
Manchester City have been heavily linked with a move to take the Spaniard to the Etihad stadium in recent months.
Recently Arsenal are also believed to have expressed an interest in the young forward as the Gunners look to rebuild a squad capable of challenging at the top.
Arsene Wenger has raided Malaga before, bringing in both Nacho Monreal and Santi Cazorla this season.
Previously Liverpool are said to have been courting Isco as a long-term replacement to Steven Gerrard. Despite that, more recent rumours suggest the Anfield-based club have switched their attention to Ajax star Christian Eriksen.
