By Femi Adefioye, Lagos
Captain of the Super Eagles, Mikel Obi has reportedly considering a switch to French side Olympique Marseille when his contract with English premier league club Chelsea expires at the end of the season.
Mikel has reportedly sought an advice from former Chelsea mate and striker Didier Drogba over a possible move to French club.
Mikel who is out of contract at Chelsea at the end of this season is rumoured to be heading to the former European champions when the transfer window reopens in January.
The midfielder has not featured for the London based club since the commencement of the current season and seems not to be in the plans of coach Antonio Conte.
According to a report in the Evening Standard, Mikel has been quizzing Chelsea legend Drogba about the French club.
The former Lyn Oslo of Norway star is said to respect the former Ivory Coast captain opinion and is ready to make the switch.
Drogba joined Chelsea from Marseille in 2004, while Mikel joined in 2006.
