Chelsea legend Michael Essien linked with Croatian side HNK Rijeka

Michael Essien has been linked with Croatian club HNK Rijeka in the next transfer window.
But Essien is available on a free transfer after leaving Panathinaikos whom he is seeking a severance package.

UK-based online portal Metro claims the former Chelsea star is looking at moving in the summer.

The 34-year-old has been training at the English giants to improve his fitness ahead of a move.

Essien started his career at Bastia before making a switch to Olympique Marseille where he was successful.

He spent a season-long loan spell at Real Madrid and then played for AC Milan
