The Spanish news outlet is reporting that Chelsea are already well stocked in between the sticks, and are even trying to tie down the goalkeepers they already have at the club to new deals, meaning that there may be a slight chance the 21-year-old will be granted an exit at some point over the summer.

Petr Cech, although currently recovering from a shoulder injury, is expected to be back in time to play the majority of the 2014-15 season, while veteran back-up option Mark Schwarzer is believed to be staying on for a further year, and young reserve stopper Jamal Blackman has recently been awarded a new long term contract.

With so many choices, it is unlikely that there will be a place in the squad for the Belgian international, who has spent the past three years on loan at the Vicente Calderon, and has even spoke of his desire to stay at the club beyond the end of the campaign.
