Chelsea have reportedly made contact with Inter Milan with a view of shipping the midfielder, John Obi Mikel to the Italian club.
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte wants Mikel to leave and make room for new signings. Chelsea are asking for $6.6M for the long serving defensive midfielder. Inter are said to be keen in landing Mikel and are considering the proposal.
Mikel suffered a spell on the bench under Jose Mourinho, but his career was given a shot in the arm by interim coach Guus Hinddink after Mourinho was fired for bad results.
However, Mikel’s agent, Mesrun Izzet revealed there were also offers from Turkey.
“Mikel did enquire about Besiktas and there were talks but it all depends on what their board decide to do,” Izzet said.
“Money is of course important but Mikel wants first-team football if he is to move.”
