Villarreal midfielder Matias Fernandez could be set to join a Premier League club in the summer, according to his agent.
The 23-year-old has been with the Primera Division outfit since 2007 but speculation suggests he may leave during the transfer window.
Agent Alejandro Santiesteban is ready to assess every available option and claims there are already offers on the table from two top-flight clubs in England.
Santiesteban claims Bolton are interested and also Blackburn, where Fernandez's Chilean compatriot Carlos Villanueva spent the 2008/9 campaign.
"Matias will have his holidays after the match with Bolivia and we then have time until August 31 to resolve his situation because the transfer window gets closed that day," Santiesteban told the Chilean press.
"There is an offer from Bolton and a chance in Blackburn, where Carlos Villanueva was but we will analyse everything once the Spanish Liga ends."
