Clubs line up for Kouame

Olympique Marseille, Lyon and Borussia Dortmund are ready to do battle for Genoa striker Christian Kouame, claim reports.

The 21-year-old impressed last term in Serie A with four goals and six assists in 38 games, while he scored some stunners in pre-season too.

According to Le10Sport and Tuttomercatoweb, the Ivorian is about to spark a bidding war.

Marseille have been tracking Kouame for some time, but now face competition from fellow Ligue 1 outfit Olympique Lyonnais and Germans Borussia Dortmund.

He is under contract with Genoa until June 2023, but has spent his entire career in Italy with Prato, Sassuolo, Inter and Cittadella.

The Grifone purchased him last summer for just over €5m.
