The agent of Giannelli Imbula has revealed that his client is likely to leave Marseille this summer.
The 22-year-old midfielder has been linked with Chelsea and more prominently Tottenham Hotspur.
But the London clubs seemingly face competition from across Europe for the Frenchman’s signature.

Willy Ndaji, who is also Imbula’s father, is quoted by Tuttomercatoweb as saying: “I have taken note of the position of the club to sell the player and at the moment I have many contacts with the leaders of several European clubs. But I let Marseille negotiate (the price).”
Spurs are believed to be heading the queue for the left-footed anchorman and apparently hope to use Marseille’s rumoured interest in Benjamin Stambouli or Etienne Capoue to secure a part-exchange deal.
Imbula, who has made 73 appearances for Les Olympiens since joining from Guingamp in 2013, has yet to be capped by the senior France side.
