Barca’s Marlon set for Serie A

Barcelona defender Marlon Santos is the subject of a €12m bid from Italian club Sassuolo, according to El Mundo Deportivo.

The 22-year-old joined the Catalan giants from Fluminense in 2016 but only appeared three times in Barca’s first team before joining Nice on a two year-long loan deal last summer.

The Brazilian made 27 appearances for the Ligue 1 club this season but his loan deal was cut in half in June, fuelling reports he was set for a permanent exit from the Camp Nou.

West Ham United, Borussia Monchengladbach and Fenerbahce had been among the clubs linked to the Brazilian, but now the Serie A side have also entered the frame.
