The object of the game is to connect a player to Nicolas Anelka in as few steps as possible. For example:

Sean Maguire played with Nmecha at Preston.

Nmecha played with Sterling at Man City.

Sterling played with Gerrard at Liverpool.

Gerrard played with Anelka at Liverpool.

First challenge for anyone who wants to give it a go: Cavani

You should give us a starting player as well or we could just choose a player currently playing with Cavani making it 1 step.

Here's one with clubs only:

Cavani played with Inler at Napoli.

Inler played with Schwarzer at Leicester.

Schwarzer played with Terry at Chelsea.

Anelka played with Terry at Chelsea.

Think we should say no NT links and probably no using the same club twice (eg Schwarzer-Terry-Anelka) as players like Gerrard and Terry would make it easy to link almost any recent Liverpool/Chelsea player to Anelka.

Next player: Wes Morgan

Next challenge: Ivan Perisic

In future whoever connects the player to Anelka first can set the next challenge.

Maldini. Bonus points (not really, there are no points) if you don't use multiple links from the same club.

Akinfenwa played with Allen at Swansea.

Allen played with Gerrard at Liverpool.

Gerrard played with Anelka at Liverpool.

Tried to find a way around Allen/Gerrard by using Bojan but couldn't.

Alex Telles once played on loan at Inter Milan
Whilst there, in February 2016, he played 73 minutes of a match against Juventus
In the Juventus team that day was a certain Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba is French (although that link isn't allowed) but in an interview Paul Pogba listed his fellow French-ies Patrice Evra and NICOLAS ANELKA as his biggest influences.

Does that count?
If so,
Dele Alli

Could have just used iker casillas.

Was there when Anelka was at Real Madrid.
