Omeruo’s €2.5m Leganes Offer Annoys Chelsea

Leganes of Spain defender, Kenneth Omeruo will have to hope that the Spanish La Liga club come out with an improved offer for his signature this summer, as his parent club, Chelsea of England have expressed deep level of annoyance over a bid of €2.5m by the modest team.

Omeruo twinkled brilliantly on loan at Leganes during his debut season in La Liga, and repeatedly declared that he would rather stay put than return to his parent club, which he has not played a single competitive match for since signing in 2012, but his hope of dumping Chelsea have now been hit with a massive blow, as The Blues are playing hard to get.

In their bid to try and keep hold of Omeruo this summer, Chelsea have turned down an opening bid of €2.5m from Leganes, as The Blues are said to be holding out for a fee of around €5m for the the dark-skinned stopper, who has two years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge.

Omeruo, who joined Chelsea in January 2012, spent the 2018/2019 season with Los Pepineros, where he established himself as a first team regular in 31 games across all competitions.

A report by indicates further that Leganes’ president, Maria Victoria Pavon admits he was disappointed with Chelsea’s snub, but is staying hopeful a deal would be struck between both clubs.

Pavon is even confident they can reach an agreement before the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, to prevent an escalated value for Omeruo and a potential bidding war, but knows Leganes have to up their offer.
