Everton were said to be ready to trigger Iglesias’ £25m (€28m) release clause this month.

Manager Marco Silva was keen to get a deal over the line before the January transfer window shuts.

But the Toffees will have to look elsewhere for attacking recruits after Iglesias’ snub.

That is according to Spanish newspaper Marca, who claim the player himself has refused to consider a move to Merseyside.

Iglesias, 25, only joined Espanyol from Real Zaragoza last summer.

He has scored nine goals in 21 appearances for Espanyol this season, catching Silva’s eye.

But Marca claim Iglesias has made it clear he intends to remain at Espanyol until at least the end of the season.

The Spaniard has only played in La Liga for six months, having swapped Segunda Liga side Zaragoza for Espanyol back last July.

Iglesias scored his first goal for the club in a 2-0 home win over Valencia on only his second outing.

The report claims Espanyol banked heavily on Iglesias coming good for them this season - a gamble considering he has not played La Liga football before.

But already he is turning heads in Europe and a move away could be on the cards come the end of the season.

As for Everton, it is claimed they have sent a scout to watch the South American U20 Championships in Chile this week.

Cardiff are also said to have made an approach fro Toffees player Oumar Niasse, while PSG are interested in midfielder Idrissa Gueye.
