Ligue 1 giants Olympic de Marseille have expressed keen interest in FC Lorient striker Terem Moffi.

According to reports in France, Marseille are the latest club to join the chase for the in-form Nigerian striker.

Moffi, 23, has already attracted interest from OGC Nice, West Ham United, and Everton in the Premier League.

As per reports, FC Lorient have reached an agreement with West Ham United over a possible transfer to the London Stadium after the Hammers submitted £20m plus £5m in add-ons.

However, the latest reports from France indicate that Les Phocéens are ready to splash £20m plus Senegalese international, Bamba Dieng to see Moffi cross carpets from Lorient to Marseille.

The Super Eagles striker is enjoying his best season this term. Moffi has netted 12 goals in 18 Ligue 1 outings for Les Merlus.

He is second on the top scorer's chart in the French league with just a single goal behind Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe who has managed 13 goals.

Moffi has a year and a half left on his contract at Lorient.
