Chelsea has received an offer for Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, from Turkish side Goztepe.

Turkish outlet Fotomac say Goztepe are interested in offering him the chance to secure regular first-team football

The newly-promoted side are said to have entered the race alongside Sivasspor to sign the centre-back.

But Goztepe appear to be the frontrunners for his signature with their offer being more attractive.

Meanwhile, Omeruo has spoken on his future.

“Playing in the English Premier League will be great, but it will be down to the kind of offers I get,” Omeruo told Completesportnigeria last week.

He also confirmed he will be returning to Chelsea for pre-season, but admits he wants to have more game time to ensure he keeps his place in the Nigeria national team.

“I will be rejoining Chelsea for pre-season and there everything will be much clearer if I will be going out on loan again or staying at the club to be actively involved,” he added.

“I just want to play more games as much as I can and stay fully fit to represent my club and country.

“I have always had that dream to play football at the highest level, and when the opportunity came for me to join Chelsea I didn’t hesitate.

“But since I joined the club, I have played on loan and each team I joined always wanted me to stay on at the club.

“But it has been a good experience for me and I just want to build on them this coming season. As regards my future, no decision has been made yet.”

Omeruo, 23, joined the Blues from Standard Liege in January 2012 but he has failed to make a single first-team appearance.

He has been loaned out four times with his latest spell being with Turkish side Alanyaspor, where he made 26 Super Lig appearances and scored one goal.
