Blues ace in £2.5m Serie A switch link

AC Milan are weighing up a bid for Chelsea's Nicolas Anelka when the transfer window reopens in January reports talkSPORT.

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri had been looking to strike a deal for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, but the Argentine's huge price-tag and excessive wage demands have shelved the possibility of a move to the San Siro.

Instead, the Serie A giants see Anelka as the next best thing, providing they can convince him to leave the Barclays Premier League, where he has settled, in favour of a move to Italy.

The 32-year-old Frenchman is in the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge, and it remains to be seen whether Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas will be willing to offer him a new deal.


If not, then Chelsea will be conscious of losing Anelka for nothing next June, and so may agree to a cut-price sale in the mid-season window, for a fee believed to be around £2.5million.

Milan are ready to offer the player a one-and-a-half-year contract, in the hope that it will be enough to convince Anelka - who has fallen down the Chelsea pecking order, behind the likes of Fernando Torres, Didier Drogba and Daniel Sturridge - to take a chance and make the move.
