Marseille are not the only party interested in Real Madrid’s Lucas Silva as the midfielder catches the eye of the Premier League.
It had been reported that the Ligue 1 club were close to taking the Brazilian on loan for the season, shortly after appointing Madrid legend Michel to the bench.
AS adds, however, Arsenal and Southampton – the latter also linked to Asier Illarramendi – are on the scene for Silva.
Manchester United and Chelsea have both also been linked to the 22-year-old but aren’t considered likely destinations.
Lucas had been linked with a loan move to France, allowing Madrid to recall the January signing in the summer of 2016.
