Andy Mattioli

Roma and Marseille are reportedly nearing an agreement for the transfer of Zeki Celik to the French giants.

After securing the exits of Marash Kumbulla (Sassuolo) and Andrea Belotti (Fiorentina), Roma are now making one last push to complete the outgoing transfer of Zeki Celik.

The Turkish defender has struggled to obtain any minutes this season and has been convinced by the club and his entourage to look for another team to join.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Marseille are very close an agreement for Celik – their coach, Gennaro Gatuso, is said to be a big fan of Celik’s and the player has already approved of the destination.

First, however, Marseille must offload Jonathan Clauss. With Clauss gone, Celik will be given the green light to travel to France to undergo his medical with OM.
