Napoli eyeing move for Mikel Obi

Mikel Obi2Reports in England claim that Napoli are interested in signing John Mikel Obi from Chelsea.

The Serie A club, are preparing a bid to bring the Nigeria international to Naples, as their new manager has worked with the midfielder during his short time at Stamford Bridge.

Mikel was earlier linked with a move to Galatasaray earlier this summer, but has reiterated his desire to stay at Chelsea. However, he could be tempted by the lure of regular first team football, especially with the World Cup next year.

The former Lyn Oslo player holds an English passport, which means he will not have to take up one of the non-EU slots at Napoli, if he chooses to join them.
