Premier League Champions Chelsea continue to be connected with a transfer to sign a new forward with Spain international striker Diego Costa leaving for Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid in the winter, but it’s difficult to imagine they’ll spend massive money having spent a club-transfer record fee on Spaniard Alvaro Morata last summer.
Chelsea could go the developmental way and are supposedly one of a number of English Premier League clubs trying to sign highly-rated Athletic Bilbao forward Gorka Guruzeta.
With his current deal running out at the current season, Gorka Guruzeta has impressed recently, netting four times in the final six matches of last campaign for Atletico Bilbao’s youth team, the form which he’s taken into this campaign with six goals in the first 14 matches of the League season in Spain’s third tier League.
Another English Premier League club has joined the race to secure the services of the 21-year-old forward as Premier League returnee Newcastle make solid their interest in the youngster ahead of the winter transfer window in January.
Gorka Guruzeta came through the youth ranks at Bilbao and is also eyed by North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham in the New Year when they can begin negotiations over a free move, meaning Antonio Conte’s side face some stiff competition if they are to sign him.
