Sky Sports understands Osasuna midfielder Raoul Loe is attracting interest from several Premier League clubs.
The powerful midfielder has impressed over the last 12 months at Osasuna and his performances have not gone unnoticed.
The 6ft 4in defensive midfielder has been likened to his fellow Frenchman Patrick Vieira in his style of play.
Loe began his career at French outfit Bretigny-sur-Orge before being snapped up by Spanish side AD Ceuta.
The all-action midfielder impressed in a Copa del Rey match for AD Ceuta against Barcelona and his form prompted a move from Primera Liga outfit Osasuna.
It is believed scouts from several English clubs have been alerted to Loe's talents with Newcastle and Reading thought to be keeping tabs on him.
Loe is believed to be interested in a move to England with the player ideally suited for the physical nature of the Premier League.
