Marseille & Lyon challenging for Isaak Touré

L’Équipe report that Ligue 1 duo Marseille and Lyon are challenging each other in a bid to sign 19-year-old central defender Isaak Touré.

Arsenal have made it known, via Mikel Arteta, that they intend to retain the services of William Saliba for next season.

Touré has the same agent as Saliba. The Le Havre teenager is under contract with HAC until June 2023 and the Ligue 2 outfit are seeking €5m in order to sell the player.

OM President Pablo Longoria has not yet held talks with Le Havre, but has made good progress with the player’s entourage. Lyon have also recently made contact for Touré, alongside Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg.

Touré wants to have his future sorted before the U19 EURO tournament this summer, which begins on 18th June in Slovakia.
