The Germany captain's contract expires at the end of next month and he has yet to find out whether the Blues are prepared to offer him an extension, but he told Germany's WDR radio that his future will soon be resolved.
"After the season, we are definitely going to hold talks with the (Chelsea) decision makers and then we will see where things go from there," he said.
"My primary aim is to stay in the Premier League."
The 33-year-old has been linked with a move back to the Bundesliga with Schalke emerging as a surprise candidate to sign him.
But he says he would "prefer not to comment" on such rumours which "are always around when no decision has been made" about the future of a player who is set to become a free agent in the summer.
