Roca, 23, has been expected to seal a move away from Espanyol this summer after they were relegated from La Liga.
A move to any Spanish side has been complicated by strict financial rules put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Roca’s best hope for a move before the transfer window shuts may be a less fashionable Premier League team.
La Grada states that Sheffield United and Burnley ‘love’ the former Spain under-21 international.
For €15m-rated Roca, who almost joined Bayern Munich in 2019, this would not be the ideal option.
But only English clubs are in a position to pay transfer fees while offering players a better salary.
And if other offers fail to arrive, ‘everything seems to indicate’ that Roca will join Sheffield United or Burnley.
