Blues have been heavily linked with Bastia right-back Alexander Djiku, with a number of other English clubs interested.
The 22-year-old is also being targeting by Crystal Palace and Fulham, with a move looking almost certain as Bastia need to raise much needed funds for next season.
The club were relegated from Ligue 1 last season and could be sent down another division if they can’t get rid of a £4.5million debt hanging over them.
L’Equipe also report the club are looking to offload Djiku as soon as possible.
The youngster came through the youth system and has since made 91 appearances for the club.
Dijku can also play on the left as Harry Redknapp looks to further add to his back line, after signing Marc Roberts from Barsnley.
What do you think, a realistic target?
