Chelsea's Middlesbrough loanee Omeruo on Lille radar

Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo is a transfer target for French club Lille according to reports.

The Mirror suggests that the 20-year old Nigerian centre-back has impressed Les Dogues with his performances in the Championship while on loan with Middlesbrough in the second half of the season.

Omeruo, who is contracted until the summer of 2015, has been at Stamford Bridge since joining from Standard Liege in 2012 but is yet to play at senior level for the Blues.

The former ADO Den Haag loanee has been selected in Nigeria's 30-man provisional squad which is sure to further alert Lille who are expected to receive competition from Boro for his signature this summer.
