Chelsea set asking price for Super Eagles defender
Chelsea are asking for upwards of €7million (£6m/$8m) for Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, Goal reports.
Celta Vigo and Leganes are keen on the 25-year-old who is currently at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Omeruo spent last season at Leganes, helping the La Liga side escape relegation from the topflight.
Although the Spanish club is keen on signing the Nigerian on a permanent basis, they are struggling to meet Chelsea’s asking price.
They still remain hopeful of doing a deal despite the interest from Celta, and are in negotiations to try to reduce the demands for Omeruo, who can play at centre-back and right-back.
The player himself made it clear this week, that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge for good.
“I think now’s the time for me to leave, to find a place, to be my own man.
“I’m married with a baby now, so I need stability.
“Chelsea have done amazingly for me, and for my family as well, but it’s the time when I need to reach my potential and get where I think I deserve to be,” he had said.
