Leicester City and Arsenal are believed to have joined a host of clubs monitoring the progress of Valencia teenager Ferran Torres, according to reports in the Mail.
The 19-year-old has attracted attention from across Europe this campaign as he helped guide his Valencia side to a fourth-place finish in La Liga and a last-four spot in the Europa League where they bowed out to Unai Emery’s Arsenal.
He featured for 20 minutes in the formerly mentioned clash and sat on the bench last weekend as his side were victorious against Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey Final. He managed 24 appearances for Valencia this campaign and Arsenal and Leicester have joined Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in the chase for the youngster.
Valencia sources are understood to believe the Spanish u19 international could be worth around £25million if a future sell-on clause is included in any deal and they would be willing to let the youngster go for the right price.
The Foxes are keen to add to their squad this summer as Brendan Rodgers is set for his first full campaign in the East-Midlands. Many of their players are subject to a move away from the King Power this summer with James Maddison on the transfer list of a host of clubs. The club are also keen to secure the full-time services of Youri Teilemens; yet once again, the youngster is being monitored by a number of clubs.
Arsenal have not been quiet in their need of a new winger yet it’s believed their quest of Wilfried Zaha has hit a stumbling block with the Eagles wanting around £80million for their star man. In the Gunners failure to qualify for the Champions League, Unai Emery’s transfer budget may be limited which may force the Gunners into cheaper alternatives such as Torres who managed two goals last campaign.
