Rod Fanni: Marseille are keen to retain the services of their defender
Marseille defender Rod Fanni is being chased by Sevilla as they try and strengthen their back four ahead of the new season.
The 30-year-old was the tracked by a number of Premier League clubs last season, including Manchester City.
Marseille are keen to retain the services of a player they have offered a new three-year deal to in a bid to ward off interest.
However, Fanni has urged them to move swiftly if they want to conclude a deal.
"Marseille has made a good offer to me, if Sevilla are really interested in me, they know what they have to do," he said.
"I want to be relaxed and play in the first team this season regularly and show my qualities again, if I have to move, it has to be done for me to settle as quickly as possible."
