Marseille make Strootman offer

Alessandro Austini of Il Tempo has reported that Marseille have offered €22-€23 million for Kevin Strootman, a sum the Giallorossi have seemed too low.

Reportedly, the player has expressed his ill to leave the club and Di Francesco has given his “OK” for the Dutchman to leave the club. Should Marseille raise their offer, then Monchi could buy a name such as Ziyech in January to replace Strootman.
