Big-spending Malaga are chasing Olympique Marseille midfielder Charles Kabore.

The 23 year-old can play also at fullback and is a top target for Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini.

Stoke City and Sunderland are also interested in Kabore, who is considering leaving l'OM this summer.

Malaga have already welcomed former Hamburg striker Ruud van Nistelrooy in recent days.
