More interest in Lucas Silva

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.
