His agent Pablo Sabbag is eyeing a move to England for his client and the player’s representative wants to ‘test the English market’.

The South American, on the other hand, has other plans and his desire is to put pen to paper on a new deal with the Ligue 1 outfit so that he can extend his stay at Marseille. 

Ocampos and his family are happy with their life in France.

If Everton are to keen on acquiring Ocampos’ services, they need to make a considerable amount of effort in convincing him to make a switch to Goodison Park.
