English clubs scouting Osasuna’s Loe

Representatives from a number of Premier League clubs are expected to watch Raoul Loe for Osasuna against Real Madrid.

The midfielder has attracted attention from Britain and his club have already deputised an agent, Willie McKay, to act on their behalf in negotiations with interested parties from the Premier League.

“I have been given the exclusive mandate from Osasuna to work on a deal for Raoul Loe in the UK,” McKay told Sky Sports.

“Loe has been in top form this season and a number of clubs from the Premier League have been over to watch him in action and I know a lot of teams are expected to watch him against Real Madrid on Wednesday.

“He would be perfectly suited to play in England as he is a big, strong athletic midfielder and would be a success in the Premier League.”

Osasuna confirmed they have already received interest in the 24-year-old due to the form he has displayed this season for the Pamplona club.

“We have had many enquiries from England for Loe and I am not surprised as he is a very, very good player,” sporting director Petar Vasiljevic said.

“He is probably more suited to English football than Spanish football as he is a big, strong player.”

Real Madrid have a 2-0 lead from the first-leg of the Copa del Rey tie.
