The Blues fancy the battling midfielder…

Chelsea want to sign Marseille’s French midfielder Gianelli Imbula when the transfer window opens in the summer, reports the Metro.
Imbula is a 21-year-old combative midfielder, who prides himself as much in his ability to win back possession as he does his occasional forward runs.
The Blues were interested in Imbula’s services in the summer, but no deal was completed, and the midfielder has since gone on to make only 11 Ligue 1 starts this season.
With Marseille not considering Imbula a guaranteed starter just yet, they will likely listen to a substantial offer from the Premier League champions.
Chelsea already have Nemanja Matic as their first-choice holding midfielder, but with Jon Obi-Mikel likely to leave in the summer, Imbula could come in as backup to the Serbian anchorman.
