Lopez, 21, scored 11 goals in his debut season with Barca’s first team.

Athletic Club striker Nico Williams is also expected to lead the charge for Spain.

Meanwhile, De la Fuente added veterans including Manchester City’s Rodri, Real Madrid’s Dani Carvajal, Sevilla’s Jesus Navas, and Atlético Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.

However, Paris Saint-Germain forward Marco Asensio was left off after 38 caps with the national team.
