Marseille have reached an agreement with Ligue 1 rivals Nancy for their goalkeeper Gennaro Bracigliano.
Didier Deschamps has been keen to bring in keeping reinforcements this summer as confusion reigns regarding Steve Mandanda's future at Stade Velodrome.
Marseille's No.1 continues to be linked with a summer switch elsewhere, with a collection of clubs from the Premier League believed to be chasing his signature.
With there a chance they could be left without a seasoned performer between the sticks, the French giants have moved quickly to bring in back-up.
Bracigliano is a man with considerable Ligue 1 experience, having spent his entire career to date on Nancy's books.
Over the course of a 10-year stint at Stade Marcel Picto the 31-year-old shot-stopper has made well over 250 senior appearances.
