Premier League duo West Ham United and Everton will battle it out with each other, as well as Greek club Olympiakos, for the signature of Barcelona midfielder Jonathan Dos Santos, TalkSport reports.

The 22-year-old is another product of the famous La Masia, but has so far failed to make an impact in the first team despite gaining six caps for the Mexican national side.

However, he is now keen to move on in search of regular first team football as it has become clear that his chances to shine at the Nou Camp will be limited.

Since breaking into the team in 2009, Dos Santos has made just 24 appearances for the Catalan giants.

West Ham and Everton have both been strongly linked with a move for the skilful Mexican as they both look to inject some creativity into their respective midfields next term. However, they will face a battle to land him as Olympiakos are reported to have already made advances in sounding him out about a move to the Mediterranean and getting the jump on their Premier League counterparts.

The brother of Giovanni Dos Santos, he’s thought to be available for a fee of around £3 million, though it’s not known where his preferred destination will be.
