LONDON, Dec 28 (SW) - Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign Jermain Defoe when the transfer window reopens in January ahead of among others Premiership Champions Manchester United and Italian giants Inter Milan.

Defoe, 21, is valued at around £8 million despite enduring a tough season with Division 1 promotion contenders West Ham United.

Chelsea have stepped up their interest in Defoe after their boxing day 4-2 massacre at the hands of Charlton, and are expected to approach West Ham when the transfer window reopens in January.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson may look to strengthen his strike force elsewhere, with Fulham’s Louis Saha, Leeds’ Mark Viduka and Patrick Kluivert of Barcelona likely targets.

Defoe himself would favour a move to Chelsea in order to link up with former West Ham team-mates Frank Lampard, Joe Cole and Glen Johnson already at Stamford Bridge.

Maybe.

I personally don't think we'll buy him and don't think we need him (Carlton Cole is better).
