Marseille admit to Pereira interest

Marseille want to sign Inter wide-man Alvaro Pereira, the club’s sporting director Vincent Labrune has admitted.

The Uruguay international is deemed surplus to requirements at San Siro under Walter Mazzarri, and the French team are considering an offer their backroom staff member has revealed.

“Pereira is a player that we like and want to buy,” he told RMC Sport. “Maybe it’s not something we will pursue in January.

“But I think we’ll go in for him in the summer. We can’t do much in the January market.

“If someone leaves then we’ll replace them – otherwise we’ll remain the same over the winter.”
