REPORT: Chelsea Line-up Shock Move For £12m Essien Replacement

By on July 13, 2011

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Newcastle’s Ivorian international Cheik Tiote.

The 25-year old was considered one of the finds of the season last year when the Magpies snapped him up for £3.5million from Dutch outfit FC Twente.

Now the touch tackling midfielder has been identified as a possible replacement for Michael Essien who has again suffered a knee injury keeping him out of action for up to six months.

Tiote was a favourite of former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti who was linked with a move for the £12million rated midfielder according to the Mirror.

Chelsea are expected to replace Essien and have been linked with numerous players, with West Ham’s Scott Parker also in the frame. The England international is valued at around £9million and is being tracked by Tottenham and Arsenal.

    I think you need to check again the lad still has 5.1/2 years left on his contract, it would take nearly £30 million for MA to release him, if you look back we don’t sell cheap we only buy cheap

    Haha £12million 6 years left on his contract that goes no where near paying his contract up never mind the transfer fee we’d expect on top of that. You’ll be looking at £30 million at least. As radians replacement he’ll be more expensive than radian cost.

    £12m for Tiote? Maybe if they throw in Petr Cech, Josh McEachran, Florent Malouda and David Luiz.
