Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City are all interested in signing Malaga’s highly rated youngster Jose ‘Kuki’ Zalazar according to Spanish newspaper MARCA.
A move may have to be worked out soon if they want to sign him for £4.3 million, with the 16-year-old’s release clause doubling as soon as he makes his debut for the first team according to the paper.
The striker is likely to make this appearance next season, as he is currently out on loan with a third tier side in Spain. That the forward is currently playing at such a low level makes it likely that he will be one for the future if signed.
Not only does the son of former Albacete player and namesake Jose Zalazar have clubs fighting over him, but the report says he also has nations competing for his services, too. The Uruguay born star can also play for Spain. He is currently impressing for the latter’s Under 17 side, but still has the option to opt for the South American team in the senior set up.
