Chelsea target Betis Etxebarria

Chelsea target Betis Etxebarria

4-4-2.com reports that Chelsea are hot on the trail of Betis highly-rated midfielder Beñat Etxebarria.

The Blues consider the 25 year-old Spaniard as a perfect replacement for the veteran midfielder Frank Lampard who is set to leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the season. Current Etxebarria’s deal is set to expire in 2014, while his release clause amounts to € 20 million. However Chelsea hope to drive down a price to a more or less acceptable level and sign him for € 15 million.

Man City and Swansea City are also said to be closely monitoring the situation.
