La Liga side Real Betis have been linked with a move for Chelsea midfielder Mario Pasalic, who spent last season on loan at AC Milan.
Real Betis vice-chairman Lorenzo Serra Ferrer has confirmed that the La Liga side are interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Mario Pasalic ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.
When asked about rumours claiming Real Betis are interested in Pasalic, Ferrer said: “He is one of the candidates. I can’t deny what is obvious. Then, I can’t go further on this, sorry.
“We want to bring more players in the midfield. You will understand that I cannot give more details about negotiations. Some are going on, close to an end, and some others are in standby. There will be more soon.”
22-year-old Pasalic joined Chelsea from Hajduk Split in 2014 but is yet to play a competitive game for the Blues, having instead spent the last three campaigns on loan at Elche, Monaco and AC Milan.
