Marseille coach Eric Gerets admits he wants to sign Chelsea defender Khalid Boulahrouz.

"I have handed a list of the reinforcements that I want to the board and he (Boulahrouz) is on it," Gerets told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

"He's a player who interests us. It is now up to them (the board) to contact Chelsea. I don't know if that will happen. It could do.

He added: "I don't know how much Boulahrouz would cost. That is not my area. But I would really like to have him."
