Celta Vigo ready to sell excited Iago Aspas to Chelsea

Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas is ready to join Chelsea.

Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas is ready to join Chelsea.

The Daily Star Chelsea want to sign him this month, but may allow him to stay with Celta for the rest of the campaign before bringing him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Aspas has been a revelation this season. He is a late bloomer who has never played for his country at any level.

But Chelsea regard him as low risk because his buy-out clause is so low, and interim boss Rafa Benitez is a big fan.

The Celta board will meet to discuss the Blues’ offer today, but sources close to the forward said last night: “The money from Chelsea is impossible to turn down.”
