Napoli conquer Marseille

Dries Mertens finished off a well-worked team move to give Napoli the 1-0 pre-season victory away to Olympique Marseille.

Piotr Zielinski pulled out of this friendly match after a bout of flu, so summer signing Elmas was given his first start in midfield and made a very good impression at the Stade Velodrome.

Lorenzo Insigne wasted a golden opportunity 10 minutes in, firing straight at the goalkeeper on an Elseid Hysaj cross, while Fabian Ruiz and Radonjic skimmed the woodwork.

Clubs line up for Ounas

Adam Ounas impressed for Algeria in the Africa Cup of Nations, with Sevilla, Real Betis and Olympique Marseille seeking the Napoli winger.

Still only 22 years old, Ounas can play on the right, left or as a support striker and was purchased from Girondins de Bordeaux for €10m in the summer of 2017.

He failed to get regular playing time under Maurizio Sarri or Carlo Ancelotti, leading many to expect a summer exit.

Marseille and Besiktas target Durmisi

Olympique Marseille and Besiktas are battling for Lazio wing-back Riza Durmisi, who barely played after his €7.5m move from Real Betis.

The Danish international, of Albanian descent, made the move a year ago, but managed only 19 competitive appearances last season, most of them off the bench.

He had numerous injury problems to his back and thigh, so is expected to at least go out on loan this summer.

According to L’Equipe in France, Olympique Marseille are keeping a close eye on the situation and are ready to make their bid.
