Kakuta has featured for French squads from under-16s level to under-20s, in which time he has scored 15 goals from 45 appearances for the national youth teams and played an integral role in lifting the UEFA under-19s Championship last summer.
The 19-year-old recently signed a contract extension with the Premier League in December and has made appearances in five out of six of Chelsea’s Champions League group matches this season
A statement from Chelsea’s website said: “Kakuta, who recently signed a new four-and-a-half year deal with Chelsea, will be hoping to gain increased first team opportunities to add to his total of 16 appearances in our colors.”
The hotly tipped youngster moved to Stamford Bridge from French side Lens in 2007.
