Carlo Ancelotti has addressed rumours linking Everton to two of his former Real Madrid stars.

The January transfer window is fast approaching and already reports are starting to gather pace around numerous targets concerning every club in the Premier League.

One of the most common names linked to the Blues over the last few weeks has been Isco, with rumours suggesting Ancelotti is interested in a swoop for the playmaker.

However, when asked about the possibility of the 28-year-old moving to Goodison Park, the Everton boss was insistent.

He told his pre-Fulham press conference: "Isco is a rumour from the press, from the media. It's not a rumour that went out from our side.

"We are not talking about the market in this period, we are talking about the problem that we had and we are working to try and solve this problem.
