Speculation has suggested that Blues boss Jose Mourinho will turn his attention to the Turkey international in January in an effort to bolster his firepower.

A swap deal involving Demba Ba has been mooted, which would allow Gala to fill their attacking void.

The Turkish giants are ruling nothing out ahead of the winter transfer window, with chairman Unal Aysal revealing that he will not stand in Yilmaz's way if a suitable offer is tabled for the prolific forward.

Speaking at the Leaders in Football conference, which is being staged at Stamford Bridge, Aysal said: "If he wants to go and Chelsea are interested then of course, why not?

"I favour Turkish players going to Europe to play in European leagues."

Asked if the Blues had already made an approach, he added: "No, not yet.

"We had some requests from Lazio at the end of the summer, but the deal didn't go through because the conditions were not satisfied."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
