The Nigeria midfielder has begun chats with clubs once again over January move, with the French mammoths having transformed their enthusiasm into formal exchanges this week 
John Obi Mikel's agents have had contact from Marseille over a January exchange, with Chelsea looking far-fetched to offer him another agreement


The Nigeria worldwide, whose agreement terminates toward the end of June 2017, has dropped down the pecking request at Stamford Bridge since the landing of Antonio Conte and is especially on the outskirts of the squad. In any case, he would be occupied with reestablishing with the Blues if an offer was imminent. 

Marseille, who were liable to a £32 million takeover by Frank McCourt in October, need to persuade the 29-year-old to join their squad in January and have opened formal discourses over a move. 

Despite the fact that OM have fallen on difficult times in late seasons, Mikel could be pulled in to the offer of playing for one of France's greatest clubs. Also, the Ligue 1 outfit can offer the player and his family a decent way of life in Provence, however his £75,000-a-week pay could be a staying point. 

Fenerbahce are checking the circumstance yet have yet to make a move. 

Mikel has beforehand talked sincerely to Goal about his future and conceded that, on the off chance that he didn't get an offer from Chelsea by January, he would hope to start chats with different clubs. 

"I have one year left [on my contract]," Mikel told Goal . "When you have a year left as a football player, you need to begin arranging and begin contemplating what will happen toward the end of the season. Yes, there will be bits of gossip, yes, there will be discussions between clubs. 

"When you have a year left, in January, you are permitted to converse with different clubs and sign a pre-contract or have an understanding along these lines, yes, I will converse with different clubs. You never recognize what will happen. 

"I've been here for a long, long time. I've put in 11 years of my life in this football club, it is my home. This season is the last at the club if my agreement closes. I am entirely casual about it, the future looks great." 

Mikel is Chelsea's second longest serving player on the Blues' books after John Terry, and any move far from Stamford Bridge would end his long relationship with the club.
