West London side push on with attempts to leave Stamford Bridge for new home.
Power surge! Chelsea show they’re still fighting for Battersea with detailed images
They may not have been selected as the preferred bidder for Battersea Power Station, but that hasn’t stopped Chelsea releasing an artist’s impression of what they hope their stadium on the prospective site would look like.
The European champions are on the lookout for suitable locations across West London having out-grown their Stamford Bridge home, and last month submitted an official bid for one of the capital’s most iconic buildings.
In the latest step forward, Chelsea have produced a selection of images with the help of development partner Almacantar and architects Kohn Pedersen Fox as a way of seemingly applying pressure on the current preferred bidders.

Chelsea plan to develop the Battersea Power Station site into a 60,000 stadium that would incorporate the power station’s iconic four chimneys but moves to make the dream a reality are hampered by sections of the Blues support who are against the proposed switch.
However one has to agree that a move from the West London club’s current 41,000 seated stadium to a much bigger venue could garner a significant injection of revenue that can not be easily ignored.
They also plan to build a tube station on the premises that will connect to the Northern Line.
