Cesar Azpilicueta has joined Fernando Torres in urging Chelsea to sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona this summer.

The 27-year-old’s future has been a source of relentless speculation in recent days following reports that Barca are willing to cash in on the former Arsenal captain.

He’s a special player – very few teams have players like him

Cesar Azpilicueta

Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been touted as possible destinations for the playmaker.

And Blues defender Azpilicueta would love to see his Spain international team-mate join him at Stamford Bridge.

“I know him from playing by his side,” Azpilicueta is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

“He’s a great midfielder with a lot of experience of the Premier League and great players are always welcome.

“He’s a special player – very few teams have players like him. His figures are there to see and he adapts well to various positions. At Chelsea right now there is nobody like him.”

Fàbregas, who moved back to Camp Nou from Arsenal in 2011, scored eight goals and made 13 assists in 36 La Liga games for Barcelona this season.
