Chelsea have reportedly eyed French defender Boubacar Kamara at Marseille.

According to Mercato365, the Blues sent representatives to watch the enforcer in action last Friday during a win over Dijon.

It is understood that Chelsea watched the 19-year-old in action, while English team such as Norwich City, Burnley, Nottingham Forest and Blackburn were also in attendance.

Kamara is someone that is making a name for himself in Ligue 1 this season and has become a key player for Marseille.

The teenage centre-back has made 24 appearances across all competitions so far and already has experience in European football.

He’s a ball-playing defender that has a good range of passing and fits the bill of a modern day centre-back.

Kamara is a centre-back by trade, but has proven he’s got the qualities in possession to drop into the full-back or midfield areas.

Chelsea are yet to show any serious interest in the rising talent, but it makes sense he’s on their radar and he’s already looking extremely composed at first-team level.

Maurizio Sarri’s side could also do with reinforcements in the heart of defence for next season and it will be intriguing to see if Kamara becomes a realistic target for the club to bring to Stamford Bridge.
