New York Red Bulls are trying to sign Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka, according to L'Equipe.

The French newspaper claims that Head Coach Hans Backe wants to re-unite the Frenchman with Thierry Henry.

This season, Anelka has 30 appearances and 14 goals to his name in all competitions and now faces serious competition for places after the reported £50million acquisition of Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

Anelka has had nearly £70million spent on him during his career and could join New York as they have three squad places free for the new season.

One of those to depart the Red Bull Arena was former Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel who switched to LA Galaxy.

Former English league players who currently play for them include John Rooney (formerly of Macclesfield), Luke Rogers (formerly of Shrewsbury and Notts County) and Carl Robinson (formerly of Wolves, Portsmouth, Sunderland and Norwich).
