AS report the midfielder could head to London on Tuesday for a medical, with Marca saying the 21-year-old is excited about the prospect of spending a season under Unai Emery.
The midfielder made just 19 starts for Zinedine Zidane's side last season but played a pivotal part in Spain's UEFA European Under-21 Championship triumph in Italy earlier in the summer.
