Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel is keen on leaving Chelsea this January and has received four serious offers, according to reports.
The Super Eagles captain has failed to nail a place under Antonio Conte since the start of the season and will look to exit the Stamford Bridge in January, and Inter Milan, Marseille and Valencia are all ready to sigh him; with reports of interest from China too.
A source close to the player told ESPN: ‘All the offers are getting serious consideration but it is first and foremost about project football, and not about money.
‘That is why we are not considering the offer from China.
‘He also has a young family that is very important to him and he does not want to cause any upheaval in their lives.
‘Family is No. 1 priority for him in all this, so that is another reason for him to want to stay in Europe.
‘We have to make sure that we make the best decision based on that.
‘He is taking time to spend Christmas with his family. After that, a decision will be made.’
Despite his frustration at Chelsea, Mikel has impressed while on international duty with Nigeria, helping the Super Eagles to an impressive start to their World Cup qualification series.
