Chelsea are considering the possibility of building a new stadium at London’s Battersea Power Station, according to BBC
The Blues are said to have contacted a London architecture firm in order to get plans drawn up for the new venue, which is rumoured to have a capacity of between 55,000 and 60,000.
Although no decision has yet been taken to move, Chelsea are thought to be declaring their interest in order to ensure they do not miss out on the site should they decide to move the 3.3 miles from Stamford Bridge.
“In light of current developments, we think it prudent to look at the feasibility and potential for the Battersea Power Station site to be developed for a football stadium,” said a club spokesperson.
“We have made no decision to leave Stamford Bridge, and we continue to discuss with the local council any economically viable options to expand the Bridge, but we will continue to investigate various options close by.”
