Atletico Madrid join West Ham & Sevilla in taking an interest in Bouna Sarr (Marseille)

Spanish side Atletico Madrid have joined Sevilla and Premier League outfit West Ham United in taking an interest in Marseille wide-man Bouna Sarr, according to Foot Mercato.

The 28-year-old joined OM in 2015 and over the last 12 months has begun to become considered as a critical part of André Villas Boas’ set-up, with the Portuguese considering the Frenchman as a potential captain next season.

Sevilla, West Ham and an unnamed German side have registered their interest in acquiring his services this summer, with Atletico Madrid now also making an initial enquiry. The Madrid side are seeking to rid of Colombian right-back Santiago Arias this summer and are looking for someone to provide competition for Kieran Trippier.

OM might be forced to sell Sarr owing to their tricky financial situation, although he has less value on the market than players like Florian Thauvin, Duje Caleta Car, Morgan Sanson and Boubacar Camara.

Under contract with OM until 2022, Sarr has never hidden the extent of his attachment to the Mediterranean side. Stick or twist? The decision that player and club must make in the coming weeks.
