Chelsea star heading for Stamford Bridge exit

Demba BaChelsea striker Demba Ba is ready to quit the club in January, according to reports from The Express.

The Senegalese forward only moved to the West London side earlier this year, but is already believed to be surplus to requirements under Jose Mourinho.

Both Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o are currently ahead of the former Newcastle man for a berth as the focal point of the Blues’ attack, leading to rumours of an exit.

West Ham and Arsenal have been linked with Ba of late, with a January move looking increasingly likely.

FIFA accredited agent Ceykan Caliskan says that he is in contact with the hitman on a regular basis, and that he wants to leave Chelsea to move to Turkey.

“I talk closely with Demba Ba, he wants to play for a Turkish club but I can’t comment on a transfer yet,” Caliskan said.

Turkish football’s three biggest clubs – Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Besiktas – are all thought to be keen, with the latter rumoured to have held top secret discussions ahead of a deal.

Gala are also in the market for new players following Roberto Mancini’s arrival as manager, while Fener are thought to be looking at attacking additions.

Would Jose Mourinho be making a mistake if he lets Demba Ba leave Chelsea?
