Mauricio Isla is set to spark a summer bidding war after revealing that Udinese plan to cash-in on his abilities at the end of the season.

The 23-year-old Chilean international has been heavily linked with a move to England, with both Sir Alex Ferguson and Kenny Dalglish thought to have taken a keen interest in the versatile full-back.

Juventus and Roma are also reported to be tracking the 31-cap international’s progress at the Stadio Friuli, but Isla is trying to focus on his form for the Zebrette rather than an impending exit at the conclusion of the Serie ‘A’ campaign.

"I talked to the president and he is committed to my sale in June. The most important thing is for me to recover from my injury and return to the same form I have been showing," said Isla.

TalkSPORT reports that offers in the region of £10 million could be enough to lure Isla away from Udinese, where he has spent the past five seasons as a professional.

An ability to play anywhere across the midfield has helped make the player a firm fans’ favourite in Italy, but his time now appears to be up at his current home with clubs from across Europe circling.
