Of all the clubs mentioned, Newcastle have been the most heavily linked with the 18-year-old in recent weeks.

Indeed, there was one report suggesting Newcastle had already beaten the likes of Arsenal and Spurs to Fresneda.

However, that proved wide of the mark. The race is still open for the youngster, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The transfer insider took to Twitter on Thursday night to report that interest is growing in the player.

Alongside the likes of Newcastle, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus, “more top European clubs have now joined the race”.

The player himself is now “waiting for decision on his future”, added Romano.

One of Europe’s top youngsters

Newcastle and Tottenham both need to bolster their ranks at right-back.

The Magpies could do with cover for Kieran Trippier, while Spurs could do with improvements on what they’ve got.

Although Arsenal aren’t in such strong need for cover in that position, Fresneda is nonetheless a top talent who many clubs will want.

The teenager made his Valladolid debut last season and has clocked up 10 appearances overall for his club.

This term, Fresneda has featured seven times in La Liga for the newly-promoted outfit. A decent tally for such a young player.

Better still, his price tag isn’t prohibitive at all for a Premier League club. Just £10million, according to reports.

As ‘one of the biggest prospects in European football’ (AS), the likes of Newcastle, Arsenal, Tottenham and the others should try their hardest to bring Fresneda to the Premier League.

It won’t be easy though. There will no doubt be a lot of interest in his signature this year.
