Chelsea face Valencia competition for Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas

Chelsea are battling Valencia for Celta Vigo star Iago Aspas.

The prolific striker has been likened to Barcelona striker David Villa and identified by Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez as a quality addition to his squad.

Chelsea are willing to meet Aspas' €10 million buyout clause this month and loan him back to Celta for the remainder of the season.

However, they face competition from Valencia, which see Aspas as a replacement for unsettled Brazilian striker Jonas.
