Chelsea target Nicolas Otamendi will do everything he can to leave Valencia this summer, according to his agent.
Otamendi has received numerous plaudits for his part in a league campaign that saw Valencia return to the Champions League, and has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge
Now reports says he is now trying to engineer a move away from the Mestalla.
‘Nicolas told Salvo two months ago, to his face, that he wanted to leave Valencia in the summer,’ he said on Spanish radio station SER Sports.
‘Nicolas is happy at VCF and with the fans but he’s got an option to improve on a professional level. Jorge Mendes knows this too.
‘Nico is going to do everything (possible) to leave. There are a lot of conversations with clubs that want Otamendi.
‘Nicolas loves everything at Valencia but if the chance arose to leave, he’d do everything possible to make it happen.’
