Numerous clubs have been linked with the France international including some from the Premier League and Stephan has confirmed that there are discussions ongoing over a possible transfer.

"I understand he is abroad," he said.

"There are currently negotiations. We need the three parties agree. Maybe it will or will not happen."

The 25-year-old was a regular in the Marseille team last year though and any deal may depend on whether manager Didier Deschamps can get a replacement into the club in such a short space of time.

Stephan continued: "Didier Deschamps has always said he wanted an attacker. There may be an operation that will be possible in the day. But there are wishes and what is possible."
