Lille are keen to snap up Chelsea striker Gael Kakuta.

The Mail on Sunday says the Chelsea youngster was sent out on loan to Fulham last season and his club are keen for him to gain more first-team experience.

He is unlikely to feature regularly for Chelsea and a return to his homeland for a short stint is being considered.

Kakuta is currently playing for the French under-20 side in the junior World Cup in Colombia.

The 20-year-old winger caused controversy in 2009 when his old club Lens alleged that Chelsea had tapped him up.
