Chelsea have joined the interest in Montpellier defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

Mercato365 says Chelsea scouts watched the 23 year-old in action on Sunday against Olympique Marseille.

Arsenal are also chasing Yanga-Mbiwa, who now has less than 12 months to run on his existing contract and can sign a pre-contract with a foreign club from January 1.
