Reports have it that Chelsea have offered midfielder John Obi Mikel to Italian sides for transfer.
The Nigerian international who struggled for playing time at Chelsea last season is likely to be on his way out of the club.
Mikel started just 11 Premier League games for Chelsea last season as he struggled for game time alongside the
likes of Nemanja Matic, Willian and Ramires.
With Cesc Fabregas joining the club in a £30m deal from Barcelona his chances for regular football will be even rarer.
Football transfers analysts are already saying if £4.7 million is the genuine figure Chelsea are willing to accept for Mikel, it represents a strikingly firm desire to get him off the club’s books given the relatively small sum.
It is reported that lack of interest in the 27-year-old has forced the club to reduce their asking price for the player who had an unimpressive outing at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
