Bolton's Anelka looms large on Chelsea radar

The Daily Mail says he has been linked with Manchester City, Manchester United and Valencia but Chelsea are willing to move first in January and are considering a £12million bid.

They are wary of losing Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba, who has intimated he wants to leave and Anelka, 28, fits the bill as a suitable replacement.

Bolton will not be willing sellers but know the money they can recoup on the man they bought for £8m 14 months ago can help to rebuild a struggling squad.

Anelka has made no secret of his desire to play in the Champions League and would jump at the chance to move to Stamford Bridge.
