Atalanta target Marseille winger Florian Thauvin

After their heartbreaking Champions League exit at the hands of PSG, Atalanta are now looking ahead to the future.

And the Italian side have made Marseille winger Florian Thauvin a summer target, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The 27-year-old has been a key player at Marseille in recent years, but his 2019-20 season was a write-off due to a serious injury.

Thauvin managed only two games for OM, appearing for just 20 minutes in total.

And a fresh start could be on the cards for Thauvin with Atalanta seriously interested in signing him.

Di Marzio adds that the interest is mutual, but Thauvin’s heavy salary of €2.8m-per-season is an obstacle in talks.

Thauvin has also turned down a new contract from Marseille, with his current deal due to expire next year.

In June, French daily L’Equipe reported that Marseille would listen to offers of €20m for Thauvin.
