Giants of Ligue 1 Marseille may make a surprise offer for Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti this summer.
After an injury-plagued year in Catalonia, French international Umtiti has been heavily linked with a move away from the Camp Nou.
However, according to reports from Le 10 Sport, via Marca, Marseille have now expressed an interest in bringing him back to France ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Despite the arrival of Spanish international Eric Garcia, the former Lyon player has previously expressed his desire to remain in Spain and battle for his place next season.
Marseille are said to be close to completing a deal for Konrad de la Fuente, and Umtiti would be Jorge Sampaoli's second La Blaugrana signing in the coming weeks.
