The 25-year-old has caught the eye at the World Cup having found the net three times in Ecuador’s opening two outings in Brazil, including both goals in the 2-1 win over Honduras.

Valencia was also on target in his country’s 2-2 warm-up draw with England ahead of the tournament, and now the likes of Newcastle, Everton and Tottenham have been reported to be monitoring his situation.

Valencia only joined Pachuca at the start of 2014, where he has scored 18 times in 23 games, but Andres Fassi says there has already been interest.

"Enner Valencia’s value increases every day. We don’t know if he will stay, it will be hard given the offers we have received," he told Mexican ESPN.

"The options that a great player at this level gets are to be taken into account. But for now he has to keep doing things right.

"No doubt it would hurt us to let Enner Valencia go, but we are realistic about his quality."

Porto have also been linked to Valencia, but Fassi was keen not to fuel speculation as he wants the striker to continue thriving in Brazil.

"I don’t want to name a team, we want to respect the sporting moment of the player and of his national team."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
