Marseille have reached an agreement in principle with Guingamp to sign highly rated midfielder Gianelli Imbula, subject to a medical.

The Belgium-born 20-year-old helped Guingamp win promotion to Ligue 1 last term.

And he is reportedly on the verge of penning a five-year contract with Elie Baup's side after the clubs agreed an initial fee, believed to be in the region of 7million euros.

A statement on Marseille's website read: "OM and Guingamp, through their presidents, have reached an agreement for the transfer of Gianelli Imbula, subject to successfully passing the medical examination and therefore the actual signing of the player's contract with Marseille."
