The La Liga stopper has been a revelation this season and is now wanted by a number of top clubs from across the continent at the end of the season.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has registered his interest in the 21-year-old, but unfortunately for him so have Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan.

Grenada are well aware of the mounting interest in his services and recently sought to extend his contract until 2019, and they even had the foresight to increase his buy-out clause to a staggering £29m.

Atletico are believed to be leading Everton and Inter in the race to bring him on board, and they believe that Grenada will accept a substantially lower fee that what has been stated as they look to shore up their interest in the build up to the opening of the transfer window.

Murillo, who spent the past two seasons on loan at Cadiz and Las Palmas, has made 24 league appearances for Granada this term, scoring one goal.
