The reliable Spanish sports daily Marca has reported that Chelsea have turned down a bid of four million euros from CD Leganes for the Super Eagles star because it did not meet their valuation.

The 25-year-old’s priority is to remain at CD Leganes after an outstanding season in which he played 31 games in all competitions.

Though Leganes want to sign Omeruo on a permanent deal, he is also on the radar of Spanish and German clubs. He previously enjoyed loan spells at ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough, Kasimpasa, and Alanyaspor.
