Sevilla manager Jose Castro has stated that the signing of Chelsea loanee Gaël Kakuta is almost complete.
He has told Sevilla’s official website: “Kakuta is very close and I think we will be able to confirm it in the next few hours.” This would end the 23 year-old’s run of loan spells during his time signed to Chelsea.
Kakuta has apparently been able to impress the Europa League champions during his time on loan at Rayo Vallecano, making 35 appearances.
After a promising early career, becoming the youngest player to represent Chelsea in the Champions League an dubbed to be “the future of Chelsea” by then manager Carlo Ancelotti, Kakuta has appeared to have fallen off in recent years.
With Sevilla showing belief in Kakuta, it’s possible that he will return to visit Stamford Bridge in the upcoming season.
