MARSEILLE could be lining up a swoop for Lens' disgruntled striker Lamine Sakho, with a swap deal including Zoumana Camara being the proposed move.
L'OM are still struggling to seal the deal for Rennes star Cyril Chapuis and Sakho could be the man to take his place in the Marseille attack.
A swap deal is the most likely deal as l'OM are struggling with financial problems, and will offer Camara in return for Sakho plus cash.
The Stade Velodrome side were hoping to get big money for Camara but they will settle for less cash and Sakho.
The Lens striker has said that he is looking to leave the league leaders after he has failed to hold down a regular spot in the first team.
"I want to leave Lens, but I want to make it clear that it has nothing to do with the atmosphere at the club," said Sakho.
"The fans love me, my coach and my team-mates have shown me their support, but something has just snapped inside me and I am not happy anymore.
"I want to express myself on the pitch and that's not possible anymore at Lens. The coach understandably does not want to change a winning team.
"But I'm not going to argue because I'm not a troublemaker. I just want to go without kicking up a fuss."
