The 20-year-old has been the subject of interest from a number of clubs, with Marseille and Nice also reportedly keen to sign him on a temporary basis.
However, it now appears that Dijon have won the race for his services.
"I made the choice to go to Dijon because I saw them play and they play good football," Kakuta told the Canal Football Club television show.
"Coach Patrice Carteron convinced me. I hope it will be sorted in the next 24 hours. Talks are still going on."
Kakuta joined the Blues in 2007 from RC Lens.
