Prem sides looking at Loe

Osasuna midfielder Raoul Loe is a target for a number of Premier League clubs this summer, Sky Sports understands.

The 25-year-old has been on the radar of several Premier League sides for some time and he came close to a move to West Ham during the January transfer window.

The Cameroon international has just over a year to run on his contract and Osasuna could be tempted to sell him this summer rather than risk seeing Loe run down his deal.

The 6ft 4in defensive midfielder, who has been likened to Patrick Vieira, has all the attributes to make him ideally suited for the physical nature of the Premier League.

The likes of Swansea, West Brom, Hull City, Aston Villa and Premier League-bound Burnley are all thought to be keeping tabs on Loe as they weigh up potential summer signings.

Scottish champions Celtic are also thought to have cast an eye over Loe this season with the midfielder set to put himself in the shop window at the World Cup with Cameroon this summer.
