The 29-year-old has not been involved so far this season due to injuries and stern competition for a place in the defensive midfield position.

And the former Italy coach in his pre-match briefing ahead of Everton’s visit on Saturday cleared the air about speculations on his issue.

“It’s normal in every squad there are players that arrive at the end of their contract and then together with the club take a decision,” Conte told reporters.

“For me the most important thing is that Mikel is working very well now, because in the past he had some injuries. Now he is working very hard and I’m pleased with his work-rate.”

The Nigeria international is currently in the final year of his contract at the Stamford Bridge having enjoyed 11 fruitful years being a Roman Army.
