Marseille have been quite busy in the transfer window this summer, with a lot of ins and outs.
The Ligue 1 club are looking into the English market to sign players, and are reportedly looking to sign Swansea star Bafétimbi Gomis.
Yesterday, we reported Swansea have agreed to pay 40% of the player’s wages of €5m/season, but Marseille were finding it difficult to manage the rest.
According to French newspaper L’Equipe, Marseille finally agreed to pay 60% of his wages yesterday, after the Ligue 1 club boss Franck Passi was annoyed with the lack of signings.
Gomis will become the highest earner at Marseille, and will now complete his one year loan deal without an option to buy.
Marseille have lost a couple of strikers this summer, Michy Batshuayi and Steven Fletcher, and are looking to replace them with Gomis and Tottenham’s Clinton N’Jie.
