Leicester City are one of three clubs who have made an approach for Marseille star Florian Thauvin according to reports in France. Newcastle United flop is tipped to leave the club on a free transfer with the free end to leave the club next summer.
Talks on a new contract in Marseille are ongoing but is being reported by L’Equipe that Leicester are vying with AC Milan and Naples for signature. Thauvin has thrived under the tutelage of Andre Villas-Boas, scoring three goals and five assists recording has been enough to arouse the interest of Brendan Rodgers side.
Marseille are willing to tie Thauvin a new agreement, but it is said that only a long-term supply could convince him to stay in Ligue One. Last spell of Thauvin in England was a poor having joined Newcastle for £ 12m in 2015, but made only three league starts.
