“Nico Melamed” the new name in Chelsea transfer rumours

SportWitness always have the freshest and juiciest rumours from the continent, and this time they have a new name for us – Nico Melamed.

The talented Espanyol youth has been earning a name for himself, and finally he’s earned the right to be linked with the very biggest teams around.

They reckon he would cost around €8m, pennies for a club like Chelsea constantly looking to poach the best young talents.

We’re not the only ones, with Di Marzio’s original report naming a few big teams involved in the hunt for the goalscoring midfielder. He’s been tearing up the Segunda B with the Espanyol second team, and while that’s not a high level, it’s still men’s football where the kid is shining.

Nico will be a major name in the next transfer window, whenever that comes around, and Chelsea are set to pick up a real gem if they can convince him they’re the best destination for him.
