Marseille want Chelsea young gun Kakuta on loan

French outfit Olympique Marseille are keen to bring Chelsea youngster Gael Kakuta on loan in the winter.

OM president Jean-Claude Dassier has confirmed that his club is interested in the 19-year old who has played four times in the league for the Blues this term.

"Kakuta? Here at Marseille? Why not? He would be a good addition. But it will only be for the option of a straight loan - not to buy," Dassier said.

Kakuta signed a new deal to remain at Stamford Bridge until 2015 but may be better served developing his game in a regular first team environment which Marseille could offer.
