Chelsea striker Demba Ba said on Wednesday he would like to play in the Serie A as he is considering leaving Stamford Bridge.

The Senegalese international fell out of favor with the London club, with coach Jose Mourinho mainly relying on Samuel Eto o and Frenando Torres upfront.

The 28-year-old started just two games out of his 14 appearances with the Blues this season.

"I miss the continuity," footballitalia quoted Demba Ba as telling Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I’m a footballer and I want to play. That is what I want for next season. My agent has spoken with the club, and I am going to start discussing a contract for next season with other teams.

"I hope to be able to find the best solution possible. I’d like to stay in England, but I am also interested in other Leagues.

"I’d like to try Serie A, but at the moment there is nothing concrete. There are some teams in Italy who play great football though," he added.
