A long-standing target on the part of Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur is on the verge of a move to France, with Olympique Marseille.
The player in question? Ruslan Malinovskyi.
Talented midfielder Malinovskyi, of course, has long been tipped for a potential move to north London.
Amid Spurs’ ongoing search for reinforcements in the attacking third, the Ukrainian, amid a hit-and-miss campaign with Atalanta to date, was identified as a leading target on the part of Antonio Conte and co.
If the latest word stemming from the media on Sunday evening is anything to go by, though, then, as alluded to above, Tottenham’s boss looks set to be left frustrated by ongoings on the transfer front once more.
This comes with Malinovskyi understood to be on the verge of a move elsewhere.
As per a report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the 29-year-old will imminently take his talents to Ligue 1, to link up with Olympique Marseille.
OM, it is claimed, have struck a deal with their Atalanta counterparts, worth a base fee in the region €10 million.
