Chelsea to bid £10M for Bolton's Anelka

Chelsea are planning a £10 million bid for Bolton Wanderers striker Nicolas Anelka.

The Sun says Anelka and Wanderers have a gentlemen's agreement he can leave in January should a Champions League club make a serious offer.

That news is all the encouragement Blues boss Avram Grant needs to swoop when the transfer window opens in just over eight weeks.

Grant has been an Anelka fan ever since he was technical director at Portsmouth before becoming the Chelsea chief.
