A host of Premier League clubs are tracking Marseille midfielder Alaixys Romao, Sky Sports understands.
Marseille are thought to be ready to offload a number of players after a disappointing season in Ligue 1.
Togo international Romao has been a regular in the Marseille side since arriving from Lorient in January 2013 and a number of top-flight English clubs have been keeping tabs on the all-action midfielder for some time.
The likes of West Ham, Everton, Sunderland, Newcastle and Hull City are all thought to be admirers of Romao and are keeping tabs on his situation at the Stade Velodrome.
Romao, who still has two years to run on his current deal at Marseille, is thought to be available for a fee in the region of €3million (£2.4million) and the player is understood to be keen on a move to England.
