The versatile left sided player has really shone since graduating from the Sevillan side’s youth academy, and his performances in La Liga in the two seasons since his breakout have really turned heads.
Chelsea have not yet been linked, but he’s is exactly the kind of player they should be looking at. Young and talented, with a fixed release clause, if Betis manage to hold on to him for one more season, and he continues to develop at this rate, we should swoop for him the moment our ban ends, or even arrange a deal in advance – he has a release clause after all, as do all players in Spain.
If Marcos Alonso moves on this summer, or next after another season on the bench, Firpo is just the man to be a dynamic modern attacking wing back on that side for years to come.
Chelsea must hope that their rivals don’t get the deal done, then make a bid a serious consideration.
