The French giants are among a handful of clubs scrambling to secure the Belgian’s signature.

But according to RMC Sport, the runaway Ligue 1 leaders have already been in touch with the 25-year-old’s entourage.

And the report has claimed that the 25-year-old is “very interested” in joining Unai Emery’s side.

It also suggests that Chelsea are willing to let his contract run down at Stamford Bridge, which means he would be available on a free transfer in 2019.

Spanish giants Real Madrid are also believed to be keen to sign the goalkeeper, who joined the Blues in 2011.

But the Blues shot-stopper dropped a huge hint last month that he would stay with Chelsea next season.

Speaking to Sporza, he said: “I think that’s the biggest factor in all that I get over me now, and those speculations about my future certainly play a role.

“I have one year contract and feel good at Chelsea, and at the end of the season we sit down together and set a good vision, I live there quietly and know that I will be at Chelsea next year as well.
