Transfer news: Chelsea, PSG interested in this Spaniard

Chelsea, PSG and a few other clubs have been linked with Rodrigo Moreno, who reportedly has no intention to leave La Liga outfit Valencia.

Spanish publication Don Balon are speculating that Rodrigo Moreno is attracting a lot of interest from the top brass of European football. The likes of Chelsea, PSG and Atletico Madrid have been named to be keen to lure the Spanish international away from Valencia in the summer.

According to the report though, Rodrigo Moreno is unwilling to part ways with Valencia and is keen to continue leading the attack at the Mestalla. The Spanish international is prepared to reject all overtures from the likes of Chelsea, PSG and Atletico Madrid in order to continue his tryst with Valencia.

Rodrigo Moreno was once a part of Real Madrid’s Castilla setup. And the player returned to La Liga, with Valencia snapping the player up from Benfica in a relatively big-money deal in the summer of 2015. Over the course of three seasons, Rodrigo has established himself as an able attacker.

Rodrigo has led the Valencia attack admirably in the 2017-18 campaign.
But, the 2017-18 season was where he really came into his own as added responsibility fell on his shoulders following the departure of Paco Alcacer in the summer of 2016.

16 goals and 7 assists in the league alone, Rodrigo led Valencia’s attack with aplomb as the club returned to the top echelons finishing fourth and securing European football for the upcoming season.

Rodrigo’s form has seen him being preferred by Julen Lopetegui for the World Cup, with the player beating Alvaro Morata en route to being included in the 23-man squad. His form has also brought forth interest from several top clubs, with Bayern Munich, Chelsea, PSG and Atletico Madrid all linked with the 27-year-old.
