Turkish Club Set To Move For Mikel In January


Super Eagles midfielder Mikel Obi could be on his way to Turkish giants Galatasaray in the January transfer window.

Mikel has been a bit-part player at struggling Chelsea, having made just nine appearances this season.

Mikel also made just six league starts in Chelsea’s title-winning campaign last year due to the form of first-choice defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic.

According to talksport, Galatatasary are now planning to make contact with Chelsea in the coming days to try and agree a fee for the 28-year-old.

Mikel’s current deal with the Blues runs until 2017 but the club are unlikely to offer him a new one and could take advantage of Galatasaray’s interest next month.
