CHELSEA are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain youngster Ismael Gharbi, according to reports in France.
The forward, 17, has broken into the PSG first-team this season, making three appearances.

And that has attracted attention from the Blues and one other unnamed big Premier League club, according to Get French Football News.
Gharbi is reportedly keen on breaking through at the French club.
But he is looking for more game time in a team packed with superstars – so could look to move if his wish is not granted.
The young Frenchman was one of the first to greet Lionel Messi to the club upon his arrival.
Gharbi is reported to have said to the Argentine: “If you need something I am here for you.”
The wonderkid plays right-wing – a position where The Blues have a lot of strength in depth.

Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi can all play down the right-flank too, so Gharbi may also find game time difficult to come by if he does move to Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have been boosted in their pursuit of Bayern Munich star Niklas Sule with the defender keen on a Premier League move.
