Sky Sports understands a number of Premier League clubs are tracking Osasuna midfielder Raoul Loe.
The all-action midfielder has impressed at Osasuna and his performances have alerted several Premier League sides.
The 6ft 4in defensive midfielder, who has been likened to Patrick Vieira, has all the attributes to make him ideally suited for the physical nature of the Premier League.
Newcastle, Aston Villa, West Brom, Norwich and Reading are all thought to have sent scouts to watch Loe in action this season.
As a result of Osasuna's financial problems they may be forced to cash-in on Loe if any of his suitors firm up their interest in the player in January.
