Europa League winners, Chelsea are prepared to part company with Nigeria’s Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo in the summer transfer window, provided an interested club meets their asking price.

The reliable Spanish sports daily Marca has reported that Chelsea have turned down a bid of four million euros from CD Leganes for the Nigeria star because it did not meet their valuation.

It will take in the region of six million euros to convince The Blues to sell the center back who arrived Stamford Bridge from Sunshine Stars in 2012.

The 25-year-old’s priority is to remain at CD Leganes after an outstanding season in which he played 31 games in all competitions.

Though Leganes want to sign Omeruo on a permanent deal, he is also on the radar of Spanish and German clubs.

He previously enjoyed loan spells at ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough, Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor.
