Barcelona talent impressing in La Liga on loan attracts Chelsea interest

Sport are the Catalan newspaper with strong links to Barcelona, so when they talk about the Blaugrana we tend to listen.

Today they’re claiming that Chelsea are one of the team most interested in La Masia talent Abde Ezzalzouli.

The winger is on loan at high flying Osasuna this season, and the Navarrense side are desperate to keep him for another season on loan.

That will apparently be difficult because of the serious interest from Chelsea, among other top European sides. After breaking through at Hercules as a kid, The Morocco international joined Barcelona’s B team last season, and after impressing there has been given a shot in La Liga.

He’s looked more than capable there, and still just 21, many are wondering just how far he can go if he continues to develop. We’re not surprised that Chelsea are one of the teams keeping an eye on the talent, and they will be hoping to see a similarly strong second part of the season.
