L’Équipe report that Marseille Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta has approached the entourage of Senegalese international striker M’Baye Niang, who currently plays for Rennes, about a possible summer transfer window.
The outlet claims that Niang is Zubi’s number one priority in attack for next season, should Marseille have the budget to be able to purchase him. A meeting is due to occur in the middle of March between the OM board and Villas-Boas to discuss the summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old is enticed by Marseille’s interest, but it will all depend on the club’s financial menas. Rennes are understood to value the player at €30m and Zubizarreta does not yet know if he’ll be able to spend that much.
