Chelsea are said to have monitored the proceedings of Marseille defender Boubacar Kamara during his team's 2-1 win over Dijon in Ligue 1 on Friday night.

The teenager is presently in his first full season with Les Phoceens' senior team and he has already made 19 league appearances during the course of the campaign.

According to Mercato365, the Blues had a representative in the crowd to watch Kamara in action on Friday night where he played through the entire 90 minutes against Dijon.

Kamara, who has also previously been associated with the likes of AC Milan and London rivals Arsenal, only has 16 months remaining on his current deal with the French outfit.

Both Gary Cahill and David Luiz will see their contracts at the Bridge expire in the summer and the Blues are expected to eye reinforcements with Kamara among those on their radar ahead of the summer transfer window.
