According to RMC, via Get French Football, Ligue 1 side Marseille are set to make a move for Jordan Amavi imminently.

The report claims that Marseille will submit a loan offer for Amavi, with the option to sign the defender for €7m at the end of the season.

Patrice Evra signed for Marseille earlier this summer, which makes Amavi’s chances of starting at the French club slim.
