The Spanish midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal as a potential replacement for compatriot Cesc Fabregas, who is being pursued by Barcelona.

Reports have also claimed Manchester United are monitoring the 28-year-old, who has two years remaining on his contract at the Merseyside club.

But agent Inaki Ibanez told Press Association Sport: "Newspapers always say many things. He has a wife and child and is happy in the city."

The speculation may increase Everton's determination to tie the player to a new deal.
