Torres, 23, was handed a first senior Spain call-up last year whilst Chukwueze has been the subject of reported Liverpool interest.

But Arsenal could also be in the frame, with Cazorla confirming he gets calls from people involved at the Emirates asking if they are capable of making the transition to the Premier League.

Speaking to Marca and asked if he gets many calls from England about Chukwueze or Pau, Cazorla said: “Yes, friends from Arsenal especially.

“They ask me about them and think they can make the jump to the Premiership tomorrow.

“It’s good that great teams are interested in young players from Villarreal, but for the moment I tell them to leave them alone here.

“They still have to take steps forward. They both have a great personality, and their feet are on the ground.

“In Pau’s (Torres) case he hears constant talk of City or Barcelona, but he is aware that he has to keep growing as a player and that in the future we will see where he can go,” Cazorla said.

Chukwueze in particular is attracting significant interest as he emerges as one of the hot properties this summer.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been linked with a £60million move as the 20-year-old is tipped to leave La Liga.

Liverpool were reported to have had a €35million offer rebuffed in the January window but he could be on the move in the summer as they eye back-up for Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in their front-three.
