Olympique de Marseille Sporting Directo Andoni Zubizarreta has met the representatives of Jordan Amavi twice recently as he continues his attempts to sign the French left-back for the January window, according to L’Équipe.
The Aston Villa left-back would prefer a move to a Premier League side if he is to leave Steve Bruce and co. next month. According to the report, two unnamed Premier League sides have also made contact.
Amavi has however refused to give Marseille and unequivocal no at the time of writing.
If Marseille are to be successful, they will have to get the cheque book out. A meeting between Marseille directors about how much money will be allocated to recruiting in each different position is planned to occur in the coming days.
