The 22-year-old was part of the Spain U21 side that won the European Championships in Italy recently, and he has already been capped by the senior side.

Usually deployed as a winger, the Eibar-born forward can also play centre-forward and started there when he scored twice and also bagged an assist in the final against Germany.

Oyarzabal is expected to leave Sociedad this summer and Alberto Lopez – who played for them between 1993 and 2006 – has named two Premier League clubs as possible destinations.

Lopez told Marca: “I really rate him. I don’t think he has a lot of time left at Real Sociedad. He has so much talent and I think he could play in a great team like Chelsea and Liverpool.”

Oyarzabal is a product of Sociedad’s youth academy, progressing all the way up the ranks before making his first-team debut in October 2015, replacing ex-Arsenal attacker Carlos Vela.
