Chelsea’s pursuit of new attacking players in the January transfer market ultimately saw the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain on-loan and Christian Pulisic, who was loaned back to Dortmund.
However, in Spanish news source Estadio Deportivo it’s claimed that Chelsea were ready to match the release clause of Sevilla goal scorer Pablo Sarabia, at around €22 million, but were not prepared to meet on wage demands.
The report says that Sarabia and his agent demanded €5 million in annual wages from interested clubs, but Chelsea were only prepared to pay €4 million and no more for the 26-year old’s services.
It’s worth noting that Sarabia apparently has this low valued €22m release-clause in his current contract for the final two weeks of a transfer window, and with the player seemingly content with life in Sevilla it will be up interesting for Blues fans to see if the player and club will agree a new contract. If not, Chelsea could make their move again in the summer.
Pablo Sarabia has been very impressive at Sevilla this season, scoring 17 goals in all competitions as well as chipping in with nine assists.
