Chelsea’s current second long-serving player, John Mikel Obi is yet to play a game for Chelsea this season, and the last time his agent John Ola Shittu talked about his transfer situation, he said Mikel Obi’s exit from Stamford Bridge in January is 50-50.
However, his agent has now revealed that his move away from the club in January is now more likely.
“It’s very likely he will leave Chelsea in January. There are many teams interested in the player,” said Shittu.
“In the past we spoke with Inter Milan but now there are a lot of Italian clubs that want him. I will not reveal the names, but there are other Italian teams on his trail. And beware: clubs in the UK, Spain, Germany and even in China know the value of the player and have requested information about him.”
