Manchester United, Liverpool, Leicester, Tottenham and Everton are all said to be keen on the Wales international

Bournemouth are yet to receive an official bid for winger David Brooks, despite continued interest from a host of top Premier League clubs.
Bournemouth's board have made it clear they want to keep 23-year old at the Vitality Stadium this summer, but appreciate they may receive an offer they find difficult to turn down.
Up to five clubs have made it clear they want the Wales midfielder - with reports suggesting Manchester United, Liverpool, Leicester, Tottenham and Everton are all keen.
However, for now, none have placed an official offer and it is understood no detailed contract offers have been made to the player either.
Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall, who replaced long-time boss Eddie Howe following their relegation, previously insisted there would be no "fire-sale" at the club.
"We as a football club have got a value of what we believe for our players and if that value is met then players have got the opportunity to then discuss with whoever they need to discuss with, and then make the decision they feel is right for them," Tindall said.
"But first and foremost, it needs to be right for the football club and once it's right for the football club then, as you've seen in the past, I don't think it's a club that will stand in anybody's way providing that the club's happy with and it meets the valuation of the player."
Brooks' possible departure along with striker Callum Wilson, who is also attracting Premier League interest, could see Tindall's squad further depleted.
Following a breakthrough 2018/19 campaign in which he scored seven Premier League goals, Brooks missed much of last season following ankle surgery, only returning for Project Restart in June.
Brooks featured in all nine of Bournemouth's games after the restart, scoring once, but was unable to help lift them higher than an 18th-placed finish.
