Chelsea prepared to send John Obi Mikel out on loan

Premier League leaders Chelsea are willing to send Nigerian international defensive midfielder John Obi Mikel out on loan this January, according to France Football.

Mikel is regarded as Conte’s third choice in the deeper midfield role in the Italian tactician’s 3-4-3 formation, behind N’Golo Kanté and Nemanja Matic.

Olympique de Marseille have been linked with the player in recent weeks, could that be a move worth making?
