Marseille going after Jordan Veretout, putting Carlos Sanchez on hold

French central midfielder Jordan Veretout is interested in joining Marseille on loan from Aston Villa for this campaign, according to L’Équipe.

Marseille approached Aston Villa at the beginning of the week about a possible loan agreement for Jordan Veretout, despite being in ongoing negotiations for the transfer of Carlos Sanchez.

Talks are ongoing between the two clubs over a possible loan deal, and although Aston Villa seem to want to keep hold of the player, Veretout, at the time of writing, appears set on leaving the club this summer.

A broad-brush agreement for the transfer of Carlos Sanchez worth €2m has been agreed between the two clubs, but OM yesterday took one step back on that arrangement. The deal is not dead yet however and its success will be determined by Marseille’s ability to do deals for other targets.
