Abde Ezzalzouli has been growing exponentially under the guidance of Jagoba Arrasate while he plays his trade away at loan in the folds of CA Osasuna. However, as is the case with most technically gifted players that seem imminent to explode, the Moroccan is attracting interest from varying places.

The reports in question from SPORT, for now, suggest that among the many sides across Europe that consider him a player to keep an eye out for, English side Chelsea are interested in acquiring the services of the 21-year-old.

The player is expected to return to FC Barcelona following the expiry of his loan spell at CA Osasuna in the summer, and while the latter is reportedly keen on asking for an extension regarding the player’s loan should he find himself being deprived of game time within Xavi’s plans, it remains an uncertainty regardless.

The Catalan outfit believe that the youngster is a valuable asset in terms of proving useful for a sizeable transfer fee in return, yet simultaneously remain hesitant about selling young stars that possess traits that might create potential world-beaters down the line.

The player himself recognizes the growth he has achieved during his time in Pamplona and may even himself be interested in a second season away from the pressure of his original home in FC Barcelona.

The now 21-year-old arrived at the Catalan club’s academy from Hercules courtesy of the decision made by FC Barcelona’s former technical secretary Ramon Planes, the same individual responsible for the planning and acquisitions of Pedri and Ronald Araujo.

Yet due to the inability to experience a lot of first-team action within Xavi’s rather stacked offensive depth at Barcelona, the player felt a loan away would be the best solution to continuing his progress in the world of football.
