Shanghai Shenhua are confident of completing a move for Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka when the transfer window reopens.

The Chinese Super League club have offered former France forward Anelka a three-year contract, which includes a salary reportedly in excess of £6million. West Ham are also said to be interested in the 32-year-old, but Shanghai assistant spokesperson Ma Yue believes agreement with Anelka's representatives is close.

He told Shanghai Daily: "It will be a three-year contract and will involve both football and commercial co-operation."
