Valencia's Sergio Canales has revealed that Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu is open to joining the La Liga side on a loan basis.
It is understood that the Stamford Bridge outfit are willing to allow the out of favour man to go out on loan and gain the required experience to push for a regular starting spot.
The former Barcelona man has been linked with a move to Celta Vigo, but Los Che have also joined the race to secure his services.
Canales played alongside the 21-year-old at youth level for Spain and believes he would be a welcome addition to the side.
Canales said: "I have spoken with Oriol and I say sincerely that he is very taken by the option of Valencia.
"This squad is perfect for a player to progress."
