The Russian arrived at Stade Velodrome last year with a lofty reputation, but failed to prove himself to Alain Perrin.
Perrin admitted earlier in the transfer window that he was ready to offload Sychev and it would appear the situation is still the same despite the coach vacating his position this week.
Sychev is still rated extremely highly on Russian soil and Lokomotiv are said to have registered their interest.
Reports are suggesting a é¼4 million deal is in the offing, which would give new l'OM coach Jose Anigo funds to strengthen his side.
Sychev's departure would leave Anigo with few attacking options, as Mido is set to represent Egypt at the African Cup of Nations and Steve Marlet is still injured.
Lens' Daniel Moreira is being tipped to arrive at Marseille as the replacement for Sychev.
