Valencia favourites to sign John Obi Mikel

Mikel close to Valencia transfer?

La Liga outfit Valencia are believed to have shown interest in signing Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel this summer, according to a report.

The talented Nigerian midfielder failed to cement his place in the Blues' line-up under Jose Mourinho last season, following the arrival of Nemanja Matic from Benfica.

According to The Daily Mail, Valencia will make a summer move for the talented player, as they aim to strengthen their midfield setup for the next season.

Inter Milan have also shown interest in the 27-year-old, who is poised to feature for the Nigerian national side during the World Cup finals in Brazil.
