Doria: Chelsea links raise a smile

Marseille defender Doria is delighted to be linked with Chelsea, but wants to keep on improving before thinking of a move away.

Reports in France are of the belief that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is still looking for new defensive recruits, despite buying David Luiz on transfer deadline day, and that the Brazilian is high on his wishlist.

When asked whether he is aware of the reported Chelsea interest, Doria told Canal +: “Yes, I heard about it through social media. But I think that I need to continue to do my work.

“We have played eight games, I need to continue… I don’t know [if it is true]. I found out about it like you did.

“But that should not stop one from dreaming, they are one of biggest clubs in Europe. I am happy about these rumours, but what is most important is to continue playing well.”
