According to Goal.com, Olympique Marseille are looking to employ the talents of Jeremie Boga next season.

The Ligue 1 giants will hope to beat Rayo Vallecano to the chase, as they have also been linked with Boga.

Boga appears to be in Chelsea’s future interests, appearing on the bench against Sunderland on the last day of the season. The Blues reportedly want Boga to sign a contract extension before they let him go on loan, as the 18 year-old has previously expressed a desire to play for Marseille – the club he supported from his early years.

Regardless, Boga has stated that his “first choice would be to stay in England,” although Marseille is “close to [his] heart.”

Chelsea sources report that the team hopes Boga’s additional experience will help him compete for a first team slot in the following season.

Cech can leave Chelsea this summer

Petr Cech completed the move to Arsenal yesterday after spending 11 years at Chelsea.

The 32 years old admitted he could have joined the gunners when he was 18 instead of going to Rennes and eventually Chelsea afterwards. He told Arsenal official website:

“There was a chance before I went to France that I could sign for Arsenal but I was only 18 or 19 and at that time Czech Republic were not in the European Union”

“You needed a work permit and the conditions were to play 75 per cent of the first-team games for the national team, which at the time was impossible for me to get. In the end I went to France because I couldn’t get a work permit.”

Mitrovic has made an impact in a short time.

With the deal for Radamel Falcao apparently finalised, Chelsea are linked to yet another striker.

Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic could be approached by Chelsea during the transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.

Mitrovic, having scored 23 goals last season, has attracted attention from a number of clubs, including Swansea and Newcastle. However, the 20 year-old is reportedly seeking Champions League football in order to advance in his career.

A younger forward like Mitrovic could be beneficial to Chelsea’s future and stability, with the possibility of Diego Costa being hit with injury woes and Falcao only guaranteed to be here for a season.

Anderlecht have valued the striker at £15million; a reasonable price for a player who has scored 44 goals in his 90 appearances for the club. Regardless, Chelsea would not have to solely rely on his talents.

With talks of a dynasty being established, it is probable that Chelsea will make a move for young players like Mitrovic.

Newcastle United is looking to make significant transfers due to the fact, that the team was really close to the relegation on the final day of last season. According to the rumour, Tim Krul, Vurnon Anita and Daryl Janmaat who are van Ginkel teammates from the national team, convinced him to choose Newcastle.

Unlike other young players, van Ginkel started his career at Vitesse and from there he moved to Chelsea.

The French star can leave Juventus this summer and the Italian side are valuing the offers that came from three European top clubs.

According to Spanish paper Sport Barcelona offered €80m + €10m ( £60m + £8m) in add-ons to purchase him in July 2016, while Chelsea offered €50m ( £35m-40m) + Brazilian midfielder Oscar from Chelsea to sign him this summer, Blues title rivals Manchester City made an impressive cash-only €100m ( £80m) bid to get France international this summer.
