Chelsea drops Mikel from pre-season tour

Mikel Obi's days as a Chelsea midfielder appear numbered as the London club dropped the Nigerian from their pre-season European playing tour.

Checks on the Chelsea website showed that the Stamford Bridge team left London on Monday for Austria with the Nigerian's name missing from the list of players that flew to Vienna. Mikel has been on the radar of some Europeans teams since the last stages of the 2013/14 season with Italian teams Inter Milan and AC Milan as the major teams that showed interest.

The tour will take them across to Slovenia where they face Olimpija Ljubljana on Sunday, before the Jose Mourinho army take on Vitesse Arnhem and Werder Bremen, in The Netherlands and Germany respectively.
