Beşiktaş make opening offer for Marseille’s Ruslan Malinovskyi

Despite only signing for Olympique de Marseille from Atalanta in January, Ruslan Malinovskyi (30) already looks set to leave Les Phocéens. Turkish side Beşiktaş have already submitted an opening offer for the Ukrainian international, according to Foot Mercato

Marseille have heavily strengthened in the forward areas this summer. Iliman Ndiaye, Ismaïla Sarr and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have all joined the club, whilst the future of Alexis Sánchez remains unclear. The Chilean international may yet remain at the club. It seems there is no room for Malinovskyi in Marcelino’s attacking arsenal, and the player is therefore free to leave the club this transfer window. 

As already revealed by Foot Mercato, Malinovskyi would prefer a move to Torino, and the Serie A side are currently working on a loan proposal. However, in the meantime, it is Beşiktaş who have made the first move. The Turkish side have already submitted an offer, according to Foot Mercato, and are awaiting Marseille’s response.
