Valencia star Paco Alcacer looks set to snub Arsenal and Chelsea and sign a new, lucrative deal at Valencia. The 21-year old has broken onto the scene in La Liga over the past few seasons and he is already off to a flying start this year with four goals and three assists so far.
His outstanding form has seen him called up to the Spain squad by Vicente Del Bosque and he is starting to attract interest from clubs like Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Arsenal and Chelsea are also very interested in the striker and both teams were preparing January bids for the Spaniard.
However, Alcacer has put to bed any hopes that Mourinho and Wenger had of signing him, by claiming that he isn’t interested in a Prem move. He told reporters: “Do not bother me with this story, I know what I want. When the time comes I will sign a renewal.
“For now I play and when everything’s ready I’ll put the signature on the contract.”
