Hermoso was impressive for Espanyol in this concluded campaign helping the Catalan club to become one of the best defensive outfits in the League. Strong in the air, good with his feet and equally an excellent tackler it is no surprise that he is highly sought after.

Hermoso excellent performances earned him a call-up to the national team and it is believed that French giants PSG have also indicated interest in the defender.

Arsenal were thought to be close to signing the defender in January but a move failed to materialize. Gunners Boss Unai Emery has been given a limited budget and the Spanish tactician is keen on adding Hermoso to the team ahead of next season.
