Blues linked with French ace

Chelsea are among the clubs showing an interest in Marseille midfielder Florian Thauvin ahead of the summer transfer window.

Thauvin moved to Marseille from Lille last summer for £12million but reports suggest their new boss Marcelo Bielsa may wish to cash in on the attacking midfielder to fund deals of his own.

The young Frenchman very nearly joined Arsenal 18 months ago, but opted to stay in France to aid his development.

Chelsea and Tottenham have since monitored the 21-year-old and after selling Juan Mata to Manchester United, Jose Mourinho has indicated that he wants a another player in that midfield role.

Oscar's future is also up in the air at Stamford Bridge as Mourinho has been un-impressed with the Brazilian since arriving last summer.

Thauvin has been highlighted as one of the most promising players in Europe and signed a five -year deal with Marseille last year, but Chelsea should have the finances to lure him away.
