The 29-year-old has been linked with Arsenal, Liverpool, Valencia, and Italian sides Fiorentina and Napoli.

Jean-Pierre Bernes, his agent, claimed: “He has a contract with Marseille and they are not a small club, they are a big club in France.

“But it is true that given his performances, and if there is the opportunity with a club, it is something we will examine and Marseille as well.

“Nothing is set, there is no destination fixed, there are contact with certain clubs in different European leagues.”

Only on Wednesday, Marseille completed the move for Rennes attacking midfielder Romain Alessandrini, which could allow for the sale of Valbuena.

The Frenchman was rested for his country’s game against Ecuador two nights ago, with Les Blues already through to the knock-out stages.
