Strasbourg in talks to sign Marseille defender Alvaro Gonzalez

L’Équipe report that Ligue 1 side Strasbourg have identified 31-year-old Spanish defender Alvaro Gonzalez of Marseille as their priority central defensive target for the January window.

Manager Julien Stéphan has been forced to dip into the market following the surgery to Maxime Le Marchand, coupled with AFCON absentees.

Initial contact has been made with OM by RSCA to understand under what conditions the South of France side would allow the Spaniard to be loaned. He is on €240k a month gross, which RSCA will not be able to come close to covering in full.

RCSA are looking at other options and have competition for Alvaro from Bordeaux, who are also interested in acquiring the player’s services, who is struggling for playing time with Marseille under Jorge Sampaoli.
