Shanghai Shenhua has confirmed it is in talks to bring Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka to the Chinese Super League (CSL) club, the Xinmin Evening News reported Tuesday.

Anelka's contract with the Blues will expire at the end of the season and he could leave Stamford Bridge in the next transfer window.

Zhou Jun, director of Shanghai Shenhua, told the newspaper the club has been working actively on bringing Anelka to China.

"We now have some advantage in the competition for signing him, but no one knows the answer until the end. The result will be clear before January 1," he said.
