French daily newspaper La Provence is reporting that Chelsea winger Bernard Traore could be joining Marseille in the coming days.
Despite largely impressing while on loan with Vitesse, the 20-year-old has struggled for playing time at Stamford Bridge and the Blues seem ready to farm him out on loan.
And while Everton have also expressed interest in the Burkina Faso international, Marseille are believed to be leading the chase at the moment.
Having seen talks with Newcastle for Florian Thauvin stall, OM bosses have turned their attention towards Traore, who reportedly prefers the Ligue 1 side to the Toffees.
There are still some details left to be sorted out, but there is a good chance the youngster will be joining Marseille on loan until the end of the season.
OM have been far from impressive this season, but they are available at 23/10 to defeat Lyon on the road this weekend.
