Chelsea to bid for Bolton's Anelka

Chelsea are expected to bid for Bolton Wanderers striker Nicolas Anelka in January.

A knee injury to Didier Drogba has made Chelsea's need for a new forward even more acute, with the Ivory Coast man still expected to play in next year's African Nations Cup.

The Times says Chelsea are expected to bid for Anelka, despite coach Avram Grant's reservations over the Frenchman's age.
