Gonalons agent denies Marseille reports

Maxime Gonalons “is happy at Roma and will not leave, even if Olympique Marseille were to call me,” said the midfielder’s agent.

France Football reported that Marseille Coach Rudi Garcia had set his sights on the former Lyon star for a return to Ligue 1 in the January transfer window.

“I have had no contact with Marseille for Maxime, that is beyond doubt,” agent Frederic Guerra told le10sport.com.

“I want to be clear: Gonalons is happy at Roma and he will not leave. Even if Marseille were to call me in January, I’d say that we were not interested, but nobody has called.”

The 28-year-old has made only nine competitive appearances for Roma this season, but contributed two assists.
