Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has fuelled speculation linking him with a January move to Marseille after he refused to rule out a move away from Stamford Bridge.

The 26-year-old Ivory Coast star has made just two appearances for the Blues this season after falling down the pecking order under Andre Villas-Boas, behind Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge.

The Chelsea forward has previously refused to be drawn on rumours linking him with a move to France, despite a suggestion on radio station RMC that Villas-Boas could loan out the frontman in January.

Reports in the French press suggest Marseille are keen on signing the former Feyenoord player, who made a rare appearance in Chelsea's 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.

"I have nothing to comment on the rumours," Kalou told Sky Sports. "Olympiakos were interested but I'm not interested in Greece. I want to play more and more."

Meanwhile, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has indicated he has "no intention whatsoever" of dismissing Villas-Boas as manager, despite the club's worst start to the season under the Russian.

A source close to Abramovich told the Telegraph: "The only one who chose this manager was Roman. This was his choice, purely. No one else was involved.

"When [Carlo] Ancelotti was selected that had much to do with Andrei Shevchenko. With [Luiz Felipe] Scolari it was [then chief executive] Peter Kenyon. With Mourinho it was [the agent] Pini Zahavi. But with Villas-Boas it has been Roman. Purely Roman."
