Chelsea are showing strong interest in Pablo Sarabia.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Chelsea are eyeing move for Sevilla midfielder Pablo Sarabia.
The Spain international joined Sevilla from Getafe for a fee in the region of 1 million euros in July 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2020.
This season, Sarabia has scored 17 goals and provided 9 assists in 36 appearances for Sevilla.
Pablo Sarabia has represented Spain at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 74 caps and scoring 19 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Chelsea.
The report claims that Chelsea manager has extensively scouted Sarabia and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Chelsea are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Pablo Sarabia would provide a good variety to Chelsea’s midfield.
According to Teamtalk, “Chelsea are pondering a summer move for Sevilla midfielder Pablo Sarabia. Estadio Deportivo report that Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the 26-year-old after a transfer to China was blocked last month. The Spanish source claim Dalian Yifang tried to sign the midfielder in January with a mind-boggling €39million offer, but Sevilla were not willing to sell him. Sarabia, who has hits 17 goals this season and nine assists, is believed to have an €18m release clause in his deal, which makes the offer from China look way too high. The player’s clause does rise to €22m for the final two weeks of a transfer market, and with just 18 months left on his contract in Andalusia, Sevilla are worried. The same source have previously reported there is “panic” in Seville over the Madrid-born player’s buyout clause.”
