Real Betis have rejected a €12m (£11m) offer for striker Loren, according to Mundo Deportivo. The Catalan based newspaper claim the bid fell short of the La Liga side’s asking price for the player.
The publication also mentions that Sheffield United are among the 26-year-old’s potential suitors, along with Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham and Newcastle.
It is not known which of the teams tabled the bid but it falls below Betis’s valuation, which is believed to be between €18m (£16m) and €20m (£18m).
Loren certainly had a good season in Spain, scoring 12 in all competitions, but Betis are in need of the cash and would be prepared to sell the forward. The Spaniard actually has a release clause of €50m (£45m).
Whether United need another striker, it is debatable. Manager Chris Wilder already has Billy Sharp, Oli McBurnie, David McGoldrick and Lys Mousset at his disposal and one of them would likely need to be sold if they were looking to strengthen the frontline.
