Olympique Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier has confirmed they hope to sign Chelsea striker Gael Kakuta.

Dassier is seeking talks with Chelsea about a loan deal for the youngster.

"Kakuta? Here at Marseille? Why not?" declared Dassier.

"He would be a good addition. But it will only be for the option of a straight loan - not to buy."
