A number of Premier League clubs are willing to meet the release clause of Barcelona youngster Tony Sanabria, according to the player's agent.

The 17-year-old striker is considering leaving the Nou Camp and reports suggest that Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are already monitoring his situation.

His agent, Raúl Verdú, told IBTimesUK that some English teams have already contacted him to show their interest in signing Sanabria.

"There are some Premier League Teams willing to pay his €3m release clause," said Verdu.

Although reports in Spain have suggested that Sanabria has already made the decision to leave Barcelona, Verdú said that he is still in negotiations to extend his contract.

"We are considering other options because it is our obligation. When other teams call you have to listen to them but first of all we have to listen to Barcelona," added Verdú.

"We have offers from England and from Italy but first we are going to analyse Barcelona's proposal."

Sanabrias's contract with Barcelona expires in 2015 and his clause looks a bargain for the big clubs, as he is considered the jewel of the Barcelona academy and has already been capped twice by Paraguay.

The young frontman is currently playing in the Spanish Second Division with Barcelona B but trains regularly with the first team.

Barcelona are desperate to keep hold of Sanabria and last week Catalan Newspaper Sport claimed that manager Tata Martino is trying to convince him that he will have opportunities with the first team in the near future.

The club are concerned about losing a striker because the departure of David Villa to Atletico Madrid last summer left them short up front.
