Chelsea star CB set to seal transfer, £4m offered

The Blues are ready to part ways with 25 year-old Super Eagles star Kenneth Omeruo, albeit for the right valuation of the player.

Chelsea signed Omeruo in 2012, and since then the Nigerian international has had to go on loan to several clubs.

Following an incredible season which the player made a total of 31 appearances for Spanish club side CD Leganes, he has revealed his desire to stay at the club. His parent club, Chelsea, are also ready to sell. Nonetheless, the Stamford Bridge outfit are holding out for a certain undisclosed valuation of the player.

According to Spanish publication Marca, the Blues rejected a £4m offer from the Spanish club because it was lower than their valuation of the player.

Having yet to disclose their valuation of the player, it is difficult to state what price is right for the player’s sale.

That said, Chelsea may just be playing games with other interested clubs to see who bids the highest as the English club are currently serving a double window ban, and they would fancy their chances of getting the best out of any situation.

Omeruo has previously turned out on loan for clubs in England and Turkey including Middlesbrough and Alanyasapor. Hence, he is being tracked by clubs in Spain, England, and as far as Germany. If he completes the move, he would have joined compatriot Ola Aina who left for Torino.
