Fulham are in talks with neighbors Chelsea over a possible loan deal for 19 year old French winger Gael Kakuta.
The Telegraph suggest that the Cottagers were unsuccessful in their attempts to bring Manchester City player Shaun Wright-Phillips, a see Kakuta as a cheap option to fill a space in the squad until the end of the season. Chelsea would be happy to see him gaining experience and although there have been offers from other French clubs, Fulham are the first Premier League club to register interest in Kakuta, which is preferable for Chelsea as it means that Kakuta is very much closer to home.
Kakuta, who has made 14 appearances for Chelsea this season – including all 6 of the Champions League group matches, has recently agreed new terms at Stamford Bridge, tying the French youth international down until 2015. Before the contract was sealed, their had been reports that Bayern Munich came close to bringing Kakuta to Germany, although this came to nothing when the player confirmed his desire to stay in London.
Munich, as well as French clubs Marseille, Bordeaux and Lille were the clubs turned down by Chelsea when asking about picking up the player who won the Golden Ball at last years Under 19 Euros.
