DC: Emre Can (Liverpool)
A terrific young player, Emre Can has shone in various positions since moving to Liverpool, but is up against some very strong competition in his quest to play for Germany.
DC: Marc Muniesa (Stoke)
Another Spaniard who is just not quite up to the standard of international football, Marc Muniesa is a top Premier League player who may have to go without a senior cap.
MC: Francis Coquelin (Arsenal)
After a superb breakthrough season for Arsenal last term, Francis Coquelin can’t be too far from getting a call-up for France, and could be a late bloomer on the international scene.
MC: Mikel Arteta (Arsenal)
Unlike Coquelin, Mikel Arteta’s best years are behind him and he surely has no chance now of winning a place in any of Spain’s squads despite a great career at club level.
MC: Ander Herrera (Manchester United)
A very surprising name to make the list, Manchester United’s classy midfield playmaker Ander Herrera is yet another uncapped Spaniard playing in England’s top flight, though this surely won’t last.
