Bolton Wanderers have slapped a £15 million price-tag on Nicolas Anelka ahead of the January market.

The People says Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all sniffing around their proven marksman. Wanderers know they could face financial meltdown if they are relegated, so selling Anelka now is the financial option.

Bolton would face a fans' backlash if they sold the striker and went down but they also know his value would drop if he becomes a Championship player.

Sources claim talks have begun between Anelka's camp and Chelsea. Both Manchester giants are also waiting for news that bids will be accepted.
