Chelsea could be in danger of losing Nicolas Anelka, after contract talks stalled for the fourth time, according to reports.
The Frenchman has been in sensational form this season and has really settled into life at Stamford Bridge, but with just 18 months left on his current contract, the club are eager to tie him down to a new long-term deal.
Forming a formidable partnership with Didier Drogba, Anelka has bagged himself 11 goals so far this season.
With the Blues keen to convince the nomadic Frenchman to commit his future to the club, it appears talks over a new deal have again stalled.
Discussions between the two parties have been ongoing for some time now, but it seems they are still some way apart.
As things stand there is just a '10 per cent chance' of an agreement being reached according Sky Sports.
Anelka has played for some of the biggest clubs in Europe including Arsenal, Paris St Germain, Real Madrid and Liverpool, but it seems that the Frenchman finally feels at home at Stamford Bridge.
If no new deal is agreed, Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti will have to decide whether to cash in now on the 30-year-old or risk losing him for nothing when his contract expires in 18 months time.
