Olympique Marseille in shock move for Eddie Nketiah

Ligue 1 outfit, Olympique Marseille, are interested in a move for Arsenal midfielder, Eddie Nketiah.

Meanwhile, the Ligue 1 outfit, who are now under the hands of Roberto De Zerbi, have yet to submit an offer for the player as of the time of filing this report.
