Yaya Linked With Surprise Club

Manchester City legend Yaya Toure has been linked with several Premier League sides, but a rather surprising club is now reportedly also keen on the African superstar's services.

Toure was suggested to be close to joining his former boss Manuel Pellegrini at West Ham United after the Chilean took over at the Hammers from David Moyes.

Pellegrini and Toure won three titles during their time together at City, and it was claimed the 64-year-old is keen to lure his former player to his new team.

However, French publication L'Equipe has now reported that UEFA Europa League finalists Olympique Marseille are also "keeping tabs" on the Ivorian.

Marseille director of football Andoni Zubizarreta, who previously held the same role at FC Barcelona before being sacked in January 2015, is said to be considering a move for Toure.

The club's coach, Rudi Garcia, reportedly wants to bolster his midfield options and Toure would suit the profile of the French club, which finished in fourth place in Ligue 1 in 2017/18.

The midfielder has also been linked with Everton, Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers, while the player himself has even flirted with a move to Manchester United. Toure's contract with City expires at the end of June, when he will be able to join his new employers on a free deal.
