Chelsea take pole position ahead of Napoli in race for Villarreal star Pedraza

Chelsea are reportedly in pole position to sign Villarreal left-winger Alfonso Pedraza.

The 25-year-old, who can also play at left-back, was instrumental in Villarreal's Europa League run to the Europa League final last season.

Napoli have shown an intense interest in the Spaniard.

But it is Chelsea who are leading the chase for his signature, according to Napoli24.

Pedraza recently signed a new contract until 2025, which includes a release clause of €35m.
