Marseille have lined up Igor Tudor should they fail to land Jean-Alain Boumsong.
Juventus stopper Igor Tudor could emerge as a transfer target for French club Marseille if they fail to land Newcastle's Jean-Alain Boumsong.
The Ligue 1 outfit are interested in signing The Magpies defender following his failure to impress in The Premiership, after already raiding England for Djibril Cisse.
L'OM may be interested in a similar loan arrangement for the former Rangers man, but in case they are unable to secure a deal reports indicate Tudor has been lined up.
The Croatian World Cup defender, who spent last season on loan at Siena, has been earmarked as a player who can help youngsters Ronald Zubar and Renato Civelli to emerge for the French outfit.
Tudor began his career at Hajduk Split but forged his reputation on a wider scale with Italian giants Juventus, and could be an astute acquisition for Marseille should they fail to land Boumsong.
