Leicester City amongst clubs linked with Marseille’s Florian Thauvin

A recent report from France has credited Leicester City with an interest in Marseille’s Florian Thauvin.

Premier League fans will most likely remember Thauvin for his rather underwhelming stint with Newcastle United.

The Frenchman initially joined the Magpies from Marseille back in 2015, before going on to make just 16 appearances for the club – in which he scored just one and assisted two.

Thauvin would be loaned back to Marseille before his former club eventually resigned him on a permanent basis in the summer of 2017.

The right-winger has since gone on to enjoy a fairly fruitful spell in the south of France.

Granted, he did miss the majority of the 2019/20 campaign due to injury.

But this season so far has seen the 27-year-old dominate the French top-flight.

In just eight Ligue 1 outings this campaign, Thauvin has managed to notch three goals and five assists for Marseille.

Leicester linked with Thauvin

Such impressive displays of late have seemingly attracted interest from several top sides around Europe.

Interest may also be mounting due to the fact that Thauvin’s current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2021, making him a potentially very desirable free agent option.

And according to a recent report from French outlet le10sport, though Marseille are said to be working to extend the winger’s deal, his list of suitors is ‘growing by the day’.

Amongst the clubs credited with an interest in Thauvin are AC Milan, Napoli and Premier League outfit, Leicester City.

And given that all three of these clubs are outside of France, Thauvin is technically allowed to sign a pre-contract agreement with any of them from January.
