Pau Lopez, Cengiz Ünder set to join Marseille


Roma are closing in on their first outgoing transfer market operations this summer.

Pau Lopez, Cengiz Ünder are nearing exits away from the capital club to join French giants Marseille on loan.

Sky Sport journalist Angelo Mangiante reports that the Spaniard will join Marseille on loan with an option to buy. The option is worth €15 million, however, it becomes an obligation linked to the number of appearances the goalkeeper makes.

Ünder will be joining his teammate Lopez at the Ligue 1 side on an identical deal. The Turkish attacker will move to the club on loan with an option to buy worth €12 million — becoming an obligation once he makes a certain number of appearances.

With Roma transfer market chief, Tiago Pinto, securing deals for the duo, he will now turn his focus to Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka.
