Chelsea are interested in Marseille forward

It has been reported that Chelsea are monitoring Marseille forward Florian Thauvin.

The French forward was loaned to Marseille in 2016 from Newcastle United and after that, his deal with the French club became permanent.

He has scored 33 goals in 50 games so far in Ligue 1.

Thauvin admitted earlier this season that he will consider leaving Marseille if they fail to qualify for the Champions League and several clubs have been alerted to the situation, writes Metro.

According to France Football, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are also interested in the forward.

Thauvin, who is tied into a contract at Marseille until the summer of 2021, is valued at around €45million (£41m).
