Chelsea are pushing to sign Juventus outcast Milos Krasic. The Telegraph says Chelsea are attempting to sign Krasic in the January transfer window as a replacement for Nicolas Anelka.

Talks are ongoing between the two clubs and it is understood that Chelsea have urged defender Branislav Ivanovic to ask his fellow Serb to push for a move to Stamford Bridge.

Krasic has been identified by manager Andre Villas-Boas as a key signing. Krasic usually plays as a right-winger, which would free Daniel Sturridge to move into the centre once Didier Drogba goes to the Africa Cup of Nations.
