Liverpool and Arsenal are both reportedly weighing up a move for Villarreal's Alex Baena, who continues to impress in Spain.

The forward has enjoyed a stellar start to the campaign, scoring six times in 10 outings for the Yellow Submarine, as he continues to attract admiring glances from Premier League sides. Baena showcased his quality in Spain's second tier last term whilst playing for Girona and is now proving himself in LaLiga.

Villarreal are now looking to retain their academy graduate, who has been on their books since 2011, by tying him down to a new deal, even though his current contract runs until 2025. Currently Baena's release clause means he would be available for just over £30m according to Spanish outlet Sport, but his current employers want to increase that figure.
