MARSEILLE have been linked with a move for Basel's Hakan Yakin.

The Swiss star has been prominent in his side's shock progression in the Champions League this season and he now being tipped to move to one of Europe's more fancied competitions.

Liverpool had been linked, but manager Gerard Houllier has already denied any interest.

L'OM are now said to be leading the race for 25-year-old midfielder, who is likely to leave in the summer.

Basle are still in the Champions League and although they have suffered two defeats already in the second phase, they will still harbour slim hopes of progression and want to keep Yakin for the second half of the season.
