The 22-year-old is on course to make Ghana's World Cup after shining for Vitesse this season, and is keen for another switch next season to continue his development
The 22-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge in September last year from Porto before joining Eredivisie side Vitesse on loan.
Atsu, a Ghana international, has featured 27 times for Vitesse in all competitions this term and is in with a chance of making Kwesi Appiah's national squad for the World Cup and he would welcome another move away.
He told Voetbal International: "It all depends on Chelsea. If they say that I have to stay in London, then why not?
"Here, I get the chance to develop myself and at Vitesse we play an attacking system.
"Suppose I move to a bigger club and am placed on the bench or I move to a team that plays counter-attacking football, that would leave me feeling like I am going to the office and taking a nap on my desk."
Atsu was voted player of the year by Vitesse fans this season as he helped keep the club in with a chance of a Europa League place going into the final week of the season.
