John Obi Mikel is a shock target for Arsenal Football Club.

Roman Abramovich is being heavily tipped to shake up the Chelsea squad when the window reopens, despite the Blues pushing Manchester United all the way for the title.

This means a number of current first team players are sweating over their futures, and Mikel is one of many who has been linked with a possible exit.

The 24-year-old has started 26 times in the Premier League this season, and Fans FC understand Arsene Wenger is monitoring his situation.

Whether the Blues would sell the midfielder to a rival club remains to be seen, and as he is under contract until 2014, they would demand a fee of around £15million.
This would be something of a surprise for a number of different reasons. Firstly it is plausible that Nigerian interantional John Obi Mikel would be considering his Chelsea future having seen his first team opportunities limited by the arrival of Ramires from Benfica but would Carlo Ancelotti or Roman Abramovich allow the 24 year old to join an arch rival? Seems unlikely.

The former Lyn Oslo midfielder did of course something of a stir when he turned his back on Man United after having seemingly already signed for the Old Trafford club, however the determined tackler has since become a crucial player at the club but some sources seem to believe Ancelotti is willing to hand his role to Brazilian international Ramires next term leading to speculation about Mikel’s future.

That said, Mikel has been in excellent form of late and his resurgence has correlated with the Blues recent good run of results that has made the West London side genuine title contenders again.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could do with some added steel in his midfield but Alex Song has done a solid job when called upon but back-up Denilson has been poor this term.

The Gunners manager is reportedly considering a big shake-up at the club with the likes of Emmanuel Eboue, Manuel Almunia, Gael Clichy, Nicklas Bendtner and Andrei Arshavin linked with exits.
