​Espanyol open to selling Raul De Tomas amid Aston Villa, Brighton links

Espanyol chairman Mao Ye has admitted they might be ready to sell Raul de Tomas this summer.

The 27-year-old netted 17 goals and managed 3 assists in 33 games last term.

As he impressed last season, Spanish outlet Fichajes claims that Aston Villa, Everton, West Ham, and Newcastle are all keen on the forward.

Speaking to Spanish media outlet La Grada, Ye said: "There is no Raul de Tomas situation. He arrived later in the pre-season and will need more training time to reach the required level.

"He has given us a lot of quality and he is a key part of the squad. This week, La Liga begins and we hope that 'RDT' will continue to contribute for us.

"There are days left in the market. And there are always possibilities (that De Tomas could leave). But we have him in our squad."
