Olympique Marseille are interested in Chelsea striker Gael Kakuta.

The 19 year-old forward has signed a new contract with Chelsea in recent weeks, but could be sent away on-loan for the remainder of the season.

Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier, speaking with La Marseillaise, confirmed their interest in Kakuta and would not rule out taking him on-loan.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti, along with Jeffrey Bruma and Patrick van Aanholt, is ready to send Kakuta away to gain regular first team football.
