Marseille tipped to re-sign Stoke City midfielder Giannelli Imbula

According to the football transfer rumours in French Media, Marseille are tipped to re-sign Stoke City midfielder Giannelli Imbula.

Giannelli Imbula has joined Stoke City from Porto for a fee in the region of 24 million euros in February 2016. The 24 year-old has a valid contract with Stoke City until June 2021.

Since his arrival from Porto, Giannelli Imbula has scored only two goals in 27 games for Stoke City, including 11 games in all competition this season.

The France international has struggled for playing time under Mark Hughes.

Stoke City are keen to get Imbula off their books as they make way for the signing of new players in the summer transfer window.

The France international is a player who has impressed many European Clubs in the last few seasons especially the period when he played for Marseille, and it is understood that Marseille manager Rudi García would prefer playing him as a defensive midfielder.

How strong that interest is and whether Marseille will make a January move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
