Verona ask OM for Doria

Hellas Verona are being linked with a possible loan bid for Olympique Marseille’s Brazilian defender Doria.

The centre-back would be available at a pretty high price, as OM want €1.5m for the six-month loan and an option to buy for a further €8m at the end of the season.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Doria is hoping to push through a transfer, as he wants to experience Serie A.

Still only 20 years old, he has a contract with Marseille until June 2019 and arrived from Botafogo in September 2014.

Despite costing the club €5m, Doria has not made a single official appearance for Marseille.
