Arsenal and Liverpool could fight it out for the signature of Costa Rica star Keylor Navas, after his goalkeeping heroics saw his side through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
Both Premier League sides are in the market for a new stopper this summer.
And Navas has caught the eye in Brazil, impressing throughout the group stage before stealing the show as Costa Rica saw off Greece to reach the last eight.
The Levante keeper, 27, is also a target for Atletico Madrid who are preparing for Chelsea to recall loanee Thibaut Courtois, and Navas' buy-out clause of just £6.5m could yet see other clubs join the chase.
'Navas is the best keeper in Spain and I think he is the best keeper at the World Cup. He has made some really great saves - of course the penalty - and I think he will end up at a great, great club,' said Costa Rica's assistant coach Paulo Wanchope.
'A lot of our players are playing for their future and we will see what happens with the likes of [midfielder] Yeltsin Tejeda or Navas.'
