Arsenal and Southampton transfer target Krychowiak rated one of the best in La Liga

Grzegorz Krychowiak has enjoyed an excellent season with Europa League winners Sevilla.

Southampton have already had a reported €12 million bid rejected by Sevilla, whilst Arsenal are currently said to be maintaining their pursuit, for Polish international midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak.

There's a very good reason for the wealth of interest too, because aside from his stellar displays as Sevilla won a second consecutive Europa League title, the 25-year-old has also been recognised for his performances in La Liga.

Journalists of the official La Liga website named their '2014-15 Liga BBVA Ideal Eleven' on Monday, which was inevitably dominated by stars of treble-winning Barcelona, who provided six players from their ranks.

However, there was no doubting the impact Krychowiak has made during just his first season in La Liga, as he took centre stage in midfield, earning praise for both his attacking and defensive efforts with Sevilla.

Whether Southampton return with a better offer, remains to be seen, whilst Arsenal continue to monitor the situation of Krychowiak, but with Sevilla competing in the Champions League next season, the Spanish club retain a level of confidence he'll remain at the club.

The Mail believes Southampton will ultimately fail with any further approaches, having already had one formal offer rejected by Sevilla, because Krychowiak wants to play in the Champions League.

Meanwhile, The Telegraph has highlighted the midfielder switching to an English representation agency, as an indication Arsenal may yet make an offer, which matches his £22 million release clause with Sevilla.
