Transfer News: Chelsea Scout Iago Aspas | Reading, Blues Target Celta Striker

Chelsea & Reading are interested in Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas with both teams sending scouts to the 2-0 defeat to Espanyol on the weekend.
Swansea are other team who have been linked with the 25 year old but have declared that a move for Aspas is out of the question.

Aspas lit up the Segunda last seaason propelling his side into the top flight with a total of 23 goals. He has a current release clause which stands at €10 million.

The centre forward is versatile and can slot in the attacking midfield if need be.

Chelsea have already bought Demba Ba in the January window but they still want more attacking additions. Meanwhile Reading need some valuable January buys to help them avoid relegation in this season's premier league.

The 25 year old has been likened to a player such as David Villa and it is no secret this young man has the talent to emulate the Barcelona man.

Whether Premier League money will lure him in January - it is no secret La Liga clubs need funds - or be forced to wait until the summer, Aspas has been tipped as the next bargain buy to come from Spain.
