The 23-year-old international has caught Marseille`s eye in a number of internationals over the last six months and Bernard Tapie`s side are reported to be lining up a bid.
The Southern French side, who are appealing against their demotion from Le Championnat following financial problems at the club, are looking to replace William Gallas who joined Chelsea earlier this summer.
Van Buyten is currently recovering from a broken leg, which he sustained against Lierse in April, but he is back in full training and would be able to pass a medical if needed.
Meanwhile, Florian Maurice has revealed that he has had offers from Bordeaux, Lille and Montpellier.
"The interested clubs are Bordeaux, Lille and lately Montpellier, but they have only made minor contact, there is nothing concrete," Maurice told his own website.
French international Maurice has struggled with a knee injury for most of the last season and he is looking to re-launch his career with a move in the summer.
