David Villa is being linked with Chelsea as a replacement for Nicolas Anelka.

The Sun says Chelsea are the Valencia striker's first choice as he prepares to leave the Mestalla in the summer.

Anelka is stalling over an extended one-year deal at Chelsea and Blues fans would view Villa, 28, as an eye-popping replacement.

Villa said: "For now my head is in Valencia and the World Cup.

"After South Africa I will decide what's best. My final decision won't be based solely on money."
