Striker Nicolas Anelka has hinted he is ready to finish his career with Chelsea after urging the Stamford Bridge club to offer him a new contract. Reports claim that the Blues are ready to offer the 30-year-old France international a new £120,000 per week contract and Anelka has revealed how happy he is with life in west London. Anelka's early career was overshadowed by a series of move to and from high-profile clubs. The former Real Madrid striker has played for nine different clubs during his 12-year professional career, including Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and the Blues in the Premier League. "I hope to sign a new contract soon. I am very happy at Chelsea. I have found a home," he said in the News of the World. "Ever since I left Real Madrid I wanted to find a big club again and I have with Chelsea. "I feel I am playing the best football of my career and want to carry on playing my best days with Chelsea."
