Chelsea, City and Swans fight for Betis stars

Benat EtxebarriaChelsea and Man City are interested in signing Betis midfielder Beñat Etxebarria according to Spain’s As newspaper.

It is thought that Chelsea want to land Beñat as a replacement for out-of-favour club legend Frank Lampard and are said to have already made a bid of €10m.

The cash-strapped club rejected this offer and are looking to hold out for his minimum release fee clause of €20m despite him only having 18 months to run on his current contract.

The 25 year old is also said to be a target for City although they are yet to make a formal offer.

The paper also suggests that Lampard will be going to China or Qatar.

Meanwhile Betis have already turned down an offer from Swansea for Jose Cañas, but it is thought Laudrup will come back with an offer higher than the original €1m in order to raid the Andalusian club who are currently operating under the Ley Concursal.
