Oihan Sancet linked with Chelsea move despite major difficulties

Sources in Spain are linking Chelsea with rising star Oihan Sancet.

The Athletic Bilbao academy product is in the headlines this week after scoring his first hattrick for his club, and inevitably that’s led to a host of transfer links. Fichajes say that the Blues – along with Bayern Munich and Liverpool – are keen to sign the versatile midfielder, who has also played up front for the Basque side.

Signing from Athletic is notoriously difficult, as they can offer huge wages, and desperately try to keep hold of players from their academy. It might not be enough to stop a move, but it would certainly make one very expensive.

We would love to be able to say that this move feels very unlikely, because of the ridiculous spending Chelsea have just conducted in attacking areas.

But the reality is that the spending so far has been hard to predict, and that pattern way well continue in the summer.
