The European Commission want to want to see, after Brexit, all EU nations, including Croatia, adopt the single currency and complete a monetary union, according to Britain's Daily Express, while German Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung claims the Commission wants to accelerate the completion of the monetary union.
"(European Commission President) Jean-Claude Juncker is now believed to be set on ensuring each member state only uses the euro after the people of Britain voted in favour of a Brexit on June 23," Daily Express wrote on Tuesday,
The president of the commission also seems set on rushing exit negotiations after claiming they should begin as soon as possible.
But it seems Mr Juncker is also keen to accelerate European intergration by making eight remaining nations use the euro.
German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung claimed there are plans underfoot to accelerate the "completion" of the monetary union.
And this move could be aided after the commission placed its current vice president in the vacant space left by the UK's EU commissioner Lord Hill.
He resigned following the historic EU referendum result.
Latvian Valdis Dombrovskis took his place as the European Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union, but will also keep his role as the current European Commissioner for the euro.
