Atletico Madrid forward Sergio Aguero has welcomed suggestions he could be a Chelsea target and insists he is flattered to be linked with the Barclays Premier League leaders.[LNB] Officials at Aguero's Spanish club claim Chelsea failed last summer with a bid for the 21-year-old Argentina international, who scored twice against Carlo Ancelotti's men in the 2-2 Champions League draw this week.[LNB] "I know that people were saying they wanted me during the summer and that there were several teams tracking me but nothing ever came to me and I am happy at Atletico," Aguero said in AS newspaper. "It's nice that people say I could play in a team like Chelsea, one of the best in the world. I like it (Chelsea's interest) and it makes me happy but I am the same person as ever and I think the same as before."[LNB] He added: "I don't really want to think about any other team. I want to fight with Atletico to the death. I almost feel like I was born here. It's a club that has given me a lot, pleasure as well as pain, but it's a place I feel very happy."
