Wigan Athletic are tracking Espanyol midfielder Jose Baena Raul.

Raul has exploded onto the scene this year under the guidance of Espanyol coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has already made enquiries after the 21 year-old winger.

However, it's emerged this week Villarreal and Valencia are also interested and are ready to battle for the youngster, who boasts only 18 first team appearances.
