According to The Daily Star, Chelsea have sent scouts to watch Arsenal target Nolito in action for Celta Vigo; as the West London side prepare to join the hunt for the Spaniard, along with Tottenham Hotspur.
Nolito has been in fine form this season after aiding Celta’s terrific start to the campaign, scoring six goals and grabbing three assists in his eight games this term; which has helped put Celta at the top of the table, level on points with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Catalan giants Barcelona are tipped as the favourites for the recently-capped 29-year-old but the player has stated he will not leave in January, making interested parties wait until the end of the current season.
Arsenal fans are furious that their London rivals have joined the pursuit for the talented forward, who can play centrally or out-wide, and are praying that Arsene Wenger wins the race for Nolito’s signature.
Chelsea fans, is Nolito a target worth pursuing? Let us know in the comments below!
