Server Djeparov Considering Chelsea Offer

Uzbekistan star Server Djeparov was recently crowned the Asian Player of the Year and is now mulling over a month-long training stint with Chelsea.

The Uzbek midfield schemer has enjoyed a fine season for his national team, and Tashkent club Bunyodkor.

Chelsea have an agreement with the Asian Football Confederation to invite the winner of the prize for training.  

“I am flattered at getting the chance to train with some of the best players in England. I will have to chalk out a plan and talk to the club about releasing me next season for this,” Djeparov told the Asian Football Confederation’s website.

The 26-year-old revealed that he had an offer from Russian title-winners Rubin Kazan, and is open to a move west.

“I know there are some offers for me but at present I am a Bunyodkor player. I am ready to leave if there is a good offer from either a Russian or European club,” he said.

“I played for a new club and won two domestic titles and completed the hat-trick by becoming the topscorer of the league for the first time. Secondly, we made it to the semi-finals of the premier club competition of the continent.

"To be among the top five players in Asia in itself was a big achievement for me and I was lost for words when I was chosen the best.”
