Chelsea retain an interest in Marseille midfielder Giannelli Imbula.

Chelsea had scouts posted for Marseille's Champions League game with Borussia Dortmund this week.

The Blues are being linked with OM winger Florian Thauvin, however, the Daily Mail says Chelsea are maintaining interest in teammate Imbula.

Imbula could be bought for around £5m to £8m less. Arsenal have also monitored his progress since he broke into Guingamp first team as a 17-year-old in 2009.
