Super Eagles and Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel could be on his way to Galatasaray this winter, according to reports in Turkey.
The Nigerian midfielder who has become a bit-part player at Stamford Bridge has only managed to five premier league appearances this season with just two starts.
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 Takvim, 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 contract and could take advantage of Galatasaray’s interest next month.
