Chelsea winger set for La Liga switch

Chelsea are ready to send Christian Atsu on another loan spell, this time to La Liga, where there are a host of interested clubs, Sky Sports reports.

The 24-year-old spent the first half of the current campaign with Bournemouth, but struggled for game time on the South Coast – he only featured twice in the Capital One Cup for the Cherries.

Malaga are currently favourites for his signature, but face tough competition from Levante, Rayo Vallecano, and Espanyol.

Atsu is said to be looking for regular first-team football, a factor that could see him opt for a move to Malaga over other interested sides.

He joined Chelsea from Portuguese giants Porto back in 2013, but has also been loaned out to Vitesse Arnhem and Everton in the past and is yet to make a single senior appearance for the Blues.

The current English champions are known for signing a host of young talent and loaning them out to a number of sides throughout Europe.
