Chelsea will listen to offers for Nigerian midfielder John Obi Mikel, according to the London Evening Standard. The West London outfit are keen to raise transfer funds for their summer targets. And the midfield duo of Mikel and Brazilian, Ramires, who already have fallen out of the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, could be on their way out.
Mikel, who joined Chelsea from Lyn Oslo in 2006, failed to play into coach Jose Mourinho’s minds last season starting just three of the side’s Premier League second half games. Meanwhile, the 27-year-old has attracted interest from Galatasaray, Monaco and Inter Milan as his days in England appears to be numbered. Chelsea recently landed Spanish striker Diego Costa and midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Atletico Madrid and Barcelona respectively and Mourinho is yet poised to continue in his ‘Blues’ rebuilding process.
