Alvaro Morata has urged Chelsea to take a long, hard look at his Spanish teammate Isco.
Morata accepts that it would take something special to prise Isco away from Real Madrid.
But he still feels it would be great if the Blues could sign the enigmatic midfielder.

Chelsea striker Morata, who played with Isco at the Bernabeu, believes his fellow Spaniard is “unstoppable” when he’s at the top of his game.
Indeed, the striker hailed Isco as a ‘real phenemenon’ during the 5-0 win over Costa Rica.
And, in an interview with Cadena Ser about the one Spain teammate he would have at Stamford Bridge, Morata said: “I would take [Isco] to Chelsea now when I return [from the Spanish camp].
“But I think that right now he has one of the most important roles at Madrid. In the national team he is also key.
“I think he is unstoppable when he feels important. The whole world has seen it since he took the reins at Madrid.
“He is the most important player at Real Madrid and in the national team.
“He changes the games, he makes the difference. He dances with the ball. Furthermore, he is my friend.”
Morata scored in the win over Costa Rica last time out and is looking forward to facing Russia on Tuesday.
