Picture of the 1.83 m (6 ft 0 in) tall Spanish defensive midfielder of Southampton

Born in Ulldecona, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain, the fledgling footballer started his career with local side CF Ulldecona, moving to Espanyol's youth system in 2011, and finally arriving at Barcelona's academy at the tender age of 13, progressing through the youth ranks until he broke in to the reserve team. The midfielder made his first and only La Liga appearance in 0-0 draw against Deportivo de La Coruña. On 4 August 2011 the Spaniard signed for Premier League club Chelsea on a four-year contract, making his debut as a substitute in a 2-1 win over Sunderland. He was a part of The Blues historic FA Cup and UEFA Champions League winning squad in the 2011/12 season, playing in 24 competitive games across all competitions. Due to a lack of first-team football the midfielder would spend the next couple of seasons on loan with Spanish club Valencia in the 2013/14 season, and German Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart in the 2014/15 season. On 13 August 2015 fellow Premier League club Southampton secured the services of the Spanish midfielder for £5 million on a three-year deal, he made his debut two days later as The Saints fell to a 3-0 defeat against Everton. Slowly but surely the Spaniard would cement his place in Southampton's first-team, making himself the cornerstone of their midfield play, both breaking up opposition attacks and starting The Saints' attacking play. Across the next four seasons (2015-19) he made 119 Premier League appearances for The Saints and won Southampton Player of the Season for his outstanding contributions during the 2016/17 season.
