The French press have claimed that Chelsea defender Khalid Boulahrouz could be loaned to Marseille next season.

The Holland international, currently preparing for the European Championship after having replaced the injured Ryan Babel, is not expected to return to parent club Chelsea next season.

The 26-year-old's arrival at Stamford Bridge was a huge surprise and his first season in The Premier League proved to be a complete failure.

France-Football claims that L'OM have contacted the Dutch player's agent regarding a summer move, as their manager Eric Gerets has fond memories of Boulahrouz's time in Hamburg.
