Chelsea head to Spain for Paredes alternative


With a move for Russia outfit Saint Petersburg star Leandro Paredes seeming difficult, the English Premier League outfit Chelsea are not ready to leave anything to chance as they now turn their attention to Spanish La Liga outfit Celta Vigo midfielder Stanislav Lobotka.

Leandro Paredes became a primary target for the West London side this winter transfer window as they are strongly linked with him but with the deal already delaying, Italian website Calciomercato says the Blues are already turning their attention to other options.

The manager Maurizio Sarri team are keen on a number of additions and they are desperate to land them as they hope to bring in Stanislav Lobotka who will be a good fit for the club and will serve as a perfect replacement for Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

However, a bid will be submitted for Stanislav Lobotka as soon as it is confirmed that Leandro Paredes will not be available in this winter transfer window.

Meanwhile, Stanislav Lobotka has been attracting a number of English Premier League sides with Bournemouth and Leicester City already being mentioned but the West London side are ready to do all it takes to land the star player who will make a good addition for the team.
