Valencia are chasing Chelsea midfielder Mikel John Obi.

The Nigerian is expected to leave Chelsea in January and has offers from Shanghai SPIG and Marseille on the table.

Don Balon says Valencia coach Cesare Prandelli wants to bring Mikel to Spain.

Los Che reps have been informed Chelsea will not seek a fee for Mikel and he still has the desire to prove himself in Europe.

Prandelli hopes to speak with the Nigerian in the coming days to convince him about a move to Valencia.
