Sevilla midfielder Pablo Sarabia rejected a move to Chelsea in January, according to Mundo Deportivo (via talkSPORT).

The 26-year-old, who made the move from Getafe in 2016, has scored 12 goals and claimed a further 10 assists for the Spanish side in an impressive campaign.

This form reportedly led Chelsea to making an offer for the playmaker in January, but the former Spain Under-21 international turned down a move.

Sarabia’s current contract is claimed to have a release clause of just £15.4million but after seeing their appeal to freeze their two-window transfer ban rejected by FIFA on Friday, the Blues will not be able to sign any players until the summer of 2020.
