Mar­seille to lure last minute cen­tre for­ward

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

LAU­SANNE:

Mar­seille are in the hunt for an ex­tra striker and coach Rudi Gar­cia said he is look­ing to snag a last minute bar­gain be­fore the trans­fer win­dow snaps shut. For­mer Roma coach Gar­cia who won the French ti­tle with Lille in 2011 was brought in last sea­son by am­bi­tious new Amer­i­can owner Frank McCourt to help Mar­seille ri­val Monaco and PSG. With Gar­cia’s clout the club have re­built their squad at­tract­ing in the sum­mer trans­fer win­dow France de­fender Adil Rami from Sevilla, striker Valere Ger­main from cham­pi­ons Monaco, Brazil mid­fielder Luiz Gus­tavo from Wolfs­burg, and France goal­keeper Steve Man­danda from Crys­tal Palace. But at Mar­seille’s pre-sea­son base at Lau­sanne Gar­cia told AFP he was pa­tiently track­ing a tar­get man be­fore the trans­fer win­dow closes next month. “If we lose Valere to­day we will again be in the same po­si­tion as last year (when they suf­fered a glut of in­juries),” Gar­cia told AFP.—AFP
