Alberto Gilardino is considering his future at Fiorentina and it's suggested he could join Olympique Marseille.
The hitman is one of several players likely to leave Florence this summer after their failure to qualify for Europe.
French newspaper L'Equipe has made several leaps of logic by suggesting Didier Deschamps will be at the helm of Marseille next season.
The report also claims the former Juventus Coach is already working out a transfer strategy with Gilardino at the top of the wish-list.
Deschamps faced competition, as Juve are also very interested in snapping up the 2006 World Cup winner.
