Chelsea scout Valencia’s £50 million striker Paco Alcacer [Sun]

The Sun on Sunday leads with a transfer story surrounding Chelsea, as Jose Mourinho is linked with a top Spanish striker.

According to the red-top, Chelsea are tracking Valencia’s 22-year-old centre-forward Paco Alcacer, who recently got on the scoresheet for Spain in a 4-0 win over Luxembourg.

Alcacer is given a £50 million price-tag by the Sun, while Chelsea reportedly sent scouts to watch the attacker on Saturday night in a 3-0 win over Malaga.

Alcacer didn’t score in the win last night, however he did complete the 90 minutes.

The Valencia forward has made a name for himself with the Spanish national team by scoring six in his first 10 appearances  since his debut last year.

Moreover, Alcacer scored 11 goals and created 24 chances in 32 La Liga appearances for Valencia last season, while this season he’s scored just one goal in seven league games.

The Sun say Alcacer has a £56m buyout clause that “could be negotiated down,” while “Chelsea have good lines of contact into Valencia, where super-agent Jorge Mendes is very influential.”

Video evidence of Paco Alcacer in action is below.
