Marseille slash Thauvin price-tag

Olympique Marseille are prepared to listen to offers worth €20m for Florian Thauvin, claim L’Equipe, putting Milan, Roma, Juventus and Napoli on alert.

The Ligue 1 club have financial problems and need to sell quickly, so L’Equipe and La Gazzetta dello Sport are confident the star man’s price-tag has plummeted.

That is also partly because he only made two substitute appearances all season due to a serious ankle injury that has been dragging on for almost a year.

Nonetheless, the versatile winger is a World Cup winner with France, registering one goal from 10 caps.

His contract is due to expire in June 2021, so at €20m that could yet represent a bargain for some clubs.

Milan and Roma have long been linked with Thauvin, but Juventus, Napoli and even Fiorentina could be ready to take advantage of the situation too.

In the 2018-19 season, before the ankle surgery, he scored 18 goals and provided nine assists in 37 competitive games for Marseille.
