Chelsea are reportedly keeping tabs on Marseille youngster Gianelli Imbula ahead of a proposed transfer bid in January.

Chelsea could look to make a January move for Marseille midfielder Gianelli Imbula, according to a report.

TalkSport, which cites sources in France, suggests that Jose Mourinho is looking to the French holding player to strengthen their midfield, with Imbula already valued at around £25m.

The youngster only joined OM last summer and has four years left on his current contract, having spent his development years at Guingamp.

Chelsea are not the only side thought to be keen on the player, with Tottenham also reportedly interested in the Frenchman.
