Chelsea chase Valencia star

Valencia midfielder Mehmet Topal has issued a come and get me plea to the Barclays Premier League, with Chelsea reportedly interested according to talkSPORT.

The 25-year-old Turkish international has been heavily linked with an exit from the Mestalla, after failing to hold down a regular place in coach Unai Emery's first-team.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas is believed to be monitoring the situation with intent, ahead of a proposed bid when the transfer window reopens in January.

Topal would relish a move to England, and the chance to test himself at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea, is an opportunity the La Liga star would struggle to turn down.

"I am happy at Valencia, but there are interested teams in me and the Premier League is a step that I would like to make a reality," he is recently quoted as saying.

After falling to a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, condemning Chelsea to their third defeat in their last four Barclays Premier League outings, the pressure is on Villas-Boas to turn things around in west London.

The Portuguese tactician will be looking for a response from his players when the Blues travel to Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, but either way, he is expected to further strengthen his squad in the New Year.
