A versatile player, Lopez is capable of playing anywhere in midfield. Talks over a new contract at the Stade Velodrome have broken down with the 22-year-old is expected to leave the club in the summer.

Les Olympiens are willing to cash in on the player to avoid losing him for free. They have offered Lopez to a number of clubs around Europe. Mourinho is a keen admirer of the youngster and believes him to be an exciting prospect for the future.

The bigger threat is likely to come from Sevilla, who had an earlier bid worth £14million rejected in January. The player is a fan of the English game and could work in our favour. Lopez had earlier refused a move to England when Liverpool came calling in 2016. Opportunities from England’s big teams don’t come too often and it remains to be seen if he takes it this time around.
