Newcastle, Marseille ponder summer move for Roma’s Jordan Veretout

Andy Mattioli

Roma midfielder Jordan Veretout is one of the most prominent names being linked with a summer exit from the Italian capital.

Arguably one of the Giallorossi’s most key figures in his first two seasons under Paulo Fonseca, the Frenchman has been relegated to the bench in recent months by Jose Mourinho, losing his first choice place in midfield to Bryan Cristante.

The ex-Fiorentina man recently changed agents after contract renewal talks with Roma broke down, paving the way for him to leave the club after three seasons.

According to Corriere della Sera, Marseille have been tracking the Veretout for several months and even tried to acquire him in January. Premier League side Newcastle United are also eyeing the French international as a potential midfield reinforcement for manager Eddie Howe.

The Giallorossi have reported slapped a €15 million price tag on the 29 year-old, who’s tallied 4 goals and 10 assists in all competitions this season.
