Roma dealt Thauvin blow

Olympique Marseille have made it clear that reported Roma target Florian Thauvin will stay at the club this summer.

Thauvin had been put forward as a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah, but Marseille President Jacques-Henry Eyraud insists the former Newcastle United winger is going nowhere.

“Florian Thauvin is Marseillaise and will stay, that’s certain,” he said at the official unveiling of Luis Gustavo, once thought to be on the shortlists of several Serie A clubs.
