Blues in French part-ex link
Marseille starlet Hatem Ben Arfa has made himself a potential part-exchange target as Chelsea look to offload Florent Malouda.
Ben Arfa only joined Marseille from the French champions in the summer but wants to follow the path of Samir Nasri and Franck Ribery out of the Stade Velodrome.
Chelsea are willing to offer French flop Malouda in part exchange to get their man - rated in the Â£10million bracket.
The former Lyon wing wizard has become unsettled in France and has made it known that he is keen on a move to the Premiership.
