Marseille & Lille track Ghana defender Daniel Opare

The two Ligue 1 clubs have expressed interest in signing the Ghanaian lateral defender but Stade Velodrome looks the more likely destination

French giants Olympique Marseille and Lille are plotting a swoop for Ghanaian defender Daniel Opare from Standard Liege.

Goal Ghana can exclusively reveal that the Stade Velodrome outfit are in search of a right-back and have the Ghanaian as a key target, but will have to face challenge from fellow Ligue 1 side Lille who are also after the former Real Madrid guardsman.

Marseille failed to sign Opare as a youth before he moved to Los Blancos but with six months left on his contract, a move to the French top flight looks possible.

Liege boss Roland Duchatelet would prefer to give a good price rather than lose him for free.
