Marseille midfielder Pape Gueye nearing Sevilla move

Marseille’s Senegalese defensive midfielder Pape Gueye (24) will be loaned to La Liga outfit Sevilla, according to a report from Foot Mercato. The former Le Havre youth product was short on game time with Les Phocéens as OM Croatian boss Igor Tudor relies mostly with Jordan Veretout (29), Mattéo Guendouzi (23) or Valentin Rongier (28) to shape his midfield. The upcoming arrival of Moroccan international Azzedine Ounahi (22) from Angers will further decrease Gueye’s game time. The Senegalese international only played thirteen Ligue 1 games, starting most of them from the bench. Gueye scored a game-winning goal against Clermont and registered one assist this season, and is tied to Marseille until 2024.

According to Foot Mercato, Gueye was not at training with Les Phocéens as Marseille and the Andalusians are close to striking a deal regarding a loan move for the 24-year-old midfielder. Gueye will therefore reunite with former OM boss Jorge Sampaoli, who is now in charge of Sevilla.
