Chelsea are believed to have turned down an offer from Inter Milan to loan Nigerian midfielder John Obi Mikel.

Inter has long been linked with #Mikel,with the Italian club keen to add the player in their team for next season.

Mikel's agent,Ola Shittu admitted at the end of the season that there has been an offer from #Inter for his client but that are they still weighing up their options.

According to a report from The Daily Mirror, Chelsea rejected the loan offer from Inter and would rather prefer an outright sell,which could be in the region of £11 million.

Mikel's current deal expires in 2017 and he could be offloaded by #Chelsea this summer as they seek to sell and recoup some money so to adequately reinforce in the departures.

The 27-year old is not the first choice-pick in midfield and might even struggle to get games next season,with Marco Van Ginkel back from his injury at the start of next season.
