Marseille prepare bid for Inter star

Olympique Marseille are ready to make an offer for Inter outcast Stevan Jovetic, according to L’Equipe.

Although Jo-Jo gestured that he intended to remain after scoring in a recent friendly, the Montenegro international is not part of Luciano Spalletti’s plans.

He just returned from a six-month loan spell at Sevilla, but they refused to meet the asking price to buy him out permanently.

Marseille’s first target had been Olivier Giroud, but they could not agree terms with Arsenal, while Milan wanted at least €20m for Carlos Bacca.

Jovetic would cost in the region of €15-20m and is considered much more accessible for the Ligue 1 side.

He has also been linked with a potential return to Fiorentina.
