Imbula has impressed for Marseille this season

Juventus have stepped up their interest in Chelsea transfer target Giannelli Imbula.

The 22-year old Marseille midfielder has attracted interest from a host of European clubs after becoming a key man for the French side since joining from Guingamp in 2013 for just £2.6 million.

The France U21 international has a contract at Marseille until 2018 but the Ligue 1 side may want to cash in on the £25m-rated defensive midfielder.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has already been linked with Imbula but Italian giants Juve are now also looking to sign the player too.

Imbula has reportedly been scouted by the Serie A side on more than one occasion this season, and the club are reportedly very keen on him after a string of impressive performances.

Imbula has made 34 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring twice in the process.
