Juventus and AC Milan want to keep want-away Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka in Europe.

Shanghai Shenhua have confirmed their pursuit of the Frenchman ahead of the January market.

However, both Juventus and Milan are also in contact with Anelka's camp about a late career move to Italy.

Even last night, former Chelsea coach Ray Wilkins urged Anelka to think again about quitting Europe as he was still good enough to perform at a top Champions League club.
