Rennes defender Joris Gnagnon confirms Chelsea interest: Very flattering

Rennes defender Joris Gnagnon is aware of interest from Chelsea.

The 20 year-old is being tracked by Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund in the early weeks of the season.

Gnagnon commented: "I hear we're talking about Chelsea and many other clubs, for sure it's very flattering. I was happy. A championship that attracts me? England. I'd really like to play there. I would like to experience this with the fans, the game, etc. It's beautiful to see. It must be something.

"I love Chelsea because we have a famous Ivorian player who played there who is Didier Drogba. It is a prestigious club. I love Chelsea but also Manchester United.

"These are the two clubs I enjoy most out there."
