Nicolas Anelka admits he would "love" a move to Chelsea after the Bolton striker revealed a transfer is being discussed between the two clubs.







The France forward signed a new four-year contract earlier this season but his superb form this campaign - where he has already scored 10 goals - has seen him heavily linked to a move to a bigger club.

"The chairmen (of Bolton and Chelsea) are discussing it," Anelka told French sports daily L'Equipe. "I really hope it happens - and especially that I am eligible to play in the Champions League.

"But until the contract is signed and I am presented to the press in my new shirt, nothing is done."

The former Arsenal striker has also been linked with a return to Manchester City where he played from 2002-05.

And the 28-year-old insists that would not be a step backwards.

"I want to go to a bigger club and that's what City have become under a manager such as (Sven-Goran) Eriksson, who I was ready to join in 1999 at Lazio," added Anelka.

"Staying at Bolton, where I am very happy, wouldn't be a punishment either."

Bolton are expected to ask for 26 million euros for Anelka - 14 more than they paid Fenerbahce for him in August 2006.

And agent Doug Pingisi is sure the in-form frontman is destined to leave sooner rather than later.

"Nico is ready to join a club at the height of his talent and his football," he said. "I would love to see him sing the Champions League anthem every year."

If he does go, it'll be a great signing for them- he's just what they need. Bolton are screwed without his quality and goal-scoring ability.

Yeah, Liverpool decided not to sign him permanently so he moved to Man City...where he scored the winner against Liverpool at Anfield!
