The stopper has made 15 appearances this season having overtaken Mat Ryan as Albion’s No1.

According to The Telegraph, it has caught the attention of England and Spain international bosses.

Both nations are said to have inquired about the 23-year-old’s availability.

Sanchez was born in Cartagena, in Spain and began his career with Levante.

But at the age of 15 he moved to England to join Brighton and made his debut in 2015.

As a result Sanchez – who is uncapped at any international level – is eligible to play for either England or Spain.

Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate has stayed loyal to Jordan Pickford, 26, who played in the 2018 World Cup.

But his current form at Everton has come into questioning with Burnley’s Nick Pope, 28, breathing down Pickford’s neck.

Dean Henderson, 23, who spent last season on loan at Sheffield United, was also a contender to compete for the spot.

That came after an impressive spell with the Blades but he remained at his parent club Manchester United this term.

Henderson’s push for an England starting position has taken a knock having played second fiddle to Spaniard David de Gea.

He has played 11 times this season, with only three of those appearances coming in the league – although he might hope for more in the second half of the season with De Gea’s form in question.
