Former Chelsea midfielder Tiago is eyeing a return to the Barclays Premier League according to

The 30-year-old Portuguese star, who currently plies his trade in La Liga for Atletico Madrid, is understood to be a January target for a number of top-flight clubs in England.

Tiago impressed during his solitary season at Stamford Bridge, making 52 appearances for the Blues in all competitions, and helping Chelsea to the domestic title.

But following the arrival of Michael Essien a year later, Tiago was sold to Lyon for a cut-price €10million fee - a move that was later described by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho as a 'huge mistake'.

Two years later, Tiago was on the move again - this time on his way to Italy with Juventus. The talented midfielder enjoyed mixed fortunes in his four years in Serie A before heading to Spain last summer.

However, having struggled to hold down a regular place in the Atletico side this season, Tiago appears to be open to a move back to the Barclays Premier League.

The Portuguese star brings with him a wealth of experience having played at two World Cups, and having also featured in four of Europe's top leagues, the journeyman could prove to be a valuable addition to a number of teams this transfer window.
