Celta Viga Striker Wanted!

Celta Viga Striker Wanted!

Having already secured the services of Demba Ba, in the transfer window, the Spanish press, in particular Marca, believes Chelsea are trying to strike a deal for a Spanish striker.

The striker in question being Iago Aspas, currently on the books of Celta Viga with Chelsea having, reportedly, bid £8.3 million for the 25 year-old.

However, Marca also goes on to suggest that Celta Viga are trying to persuade Aspas to stay with them until the end of the season.

If any more information comes our way we`ll let you know.

I haven't heard of this lad before,but I have this feeling that he is going to be a CHICHARITO for us,his goal scoring record is good and I also read that he used to play in the same club with michu and he was always prefered ahead of michu...... ......I like this piece of news because it would give us more option up front as BA will not be able to play the europa league,so aspas and torres will be our option for the europa....this is what I have been trying to point out here,I guess the club knows we need another CF and it doesn't have to be a big name....torres,aspas and ba!!!......Get aspas and sign a midfielder then we are okay for this transfer window,I hope this turn out to be a good deal

Yeah... Why not since we had difficulty in landing marquee player at this moment... Mitchu and Ba enlighten us that it is not necessary be expensive for a player to be successful over here....

IMO other clubs (Swansea, Liverpool, Arsenal, ManU...) are interested in him as well and this will RAISE his price Tag. If we want to sing him we should do this deal quick. I have not watched him that much but I can say Iago Aspas can't hold the ball up, will not win any physical battles, will not win any headers but he has serious PACE, I will say it again SERIOUS/ALARMING PACE!!, we can use him on the wing, he commits defenders and goes pass them like they are never there. I would go as far as saying he is as quick if not more quicker than Cristiano Ronaldo/Angel Di Maria. He is more quick than Torres ever was. Iago Aspas will suit counter attacking style.>>>>>I would like us to sign a player who can hold the ball up, win headers and can score in big games,not shy of battles or getting hurt, a bit like Drogba but I know there is no other player like him at this moment in time.

If we actually have paid that, then that means all that stands in the way is the player's consent since that's his buyout clause. I hope he's brought in and Torres is loaned out to Atletico as the rumors suggest

We can play ba for games like stoke city, then we'll play this lad or any striker that doesn't have any physical prowess against teams like tottenham and arsenal, so for me, since he is not expensive, I'll buy him and yanns m'villa for atleast 18m pounds in total!!!! WTF!!!

B2K420 - no need to worry about his price because the price stated is his release clause.and we don't need another drogba because we already have one in Lukaku,who already have better goal return than our player despite not a regular starter for west brom...

If we pull this off it will be another sneaky signing like the mata deal. It was Swanseas scouts who sourced out this kid. Swansea were interested in him as a possible partner for michu but were put of by his release clause. Chelsea have essentially used Swanseas scouts to do their scouting and establish the asking price for the kid. Honestly all this talk of Manu or Gunners interested in him is tabloid nonsense..ManU is not buying any other striker this window..they have one goal for summer and that is Robert Lewandowski. As for the Gunners there is no way Wnger will spend that kind of money on this sort of player..especially after he had to grovel and beg to retain Walcott. This kid is ours to get if we are really interested..Liverpool and Swansea simply cant compete with our monetary muscle here. If he ends ups half as good as michu (who BTW was not an all out striker at his old club) this may be a bargain as good as the Ba signing.

@B2K,you haven't watched him play and you know,he can't hold up play and can't win any physical battle....that's intresting......I just hope this lad score Goals for us if we eventually sign him,if he does then there would be no problem if he doesn't hold up play or win any physical battle but using him as a winger?I say hell NO....do you think he will track back to help the full backs?.... ....Well we never can say but hope he ends up being a good deal,I am excited with the prospect of having 3 strikers in the club

Everything about iago aspas is in the link I posted, both his strengths and weaknesses, unfortunately they stated at the lower part of the article that he doesn't have any weakness whatsoever, I don't know if its true

Liverpool would not have paid 12m for Torres. They know he is finished, kaput.

@Hazard11: I haven't watched him regularly every week, you watch one of his games and you will know what I meant about holding the ball/winning headers/physical battles. Michu is 6ft 1 and Iago is 5ft 9 I don't think Iago is going to win any headers/physicals battles against good EPL sides.
