Marsielle’s midfield general Lucho Gonzalez is at the centre of a tug of war between Chelsea and Everton, according to talksport.co.uk.
The 30 year old Argentinean, capped 43 times by his country is set to leave southern France after two years in Ligue 1. The former Porto midfielder has been strongly linked to Malaga, but the players agent Federico Simonian has said
“I think the player will play in England or Italy. It is not true that Malaga have made a bid. In fact their offer was very low and almost disrespectful.”
Didier Deschamps paid €18m for Gonzalez just two years ago, helping Marseille to the league and cup double in his first season in France. The commander as he is affectionately known, has racked up an impressive tally of over 40 league goals during his six years in Europe and posses all the credentials to be a success in the premier league.
