Ruslan Malinovskyi’s priority is a move to the Premier League or Italy should he leave Marseille this summer, despite interest from Besiktas.
Malinovskyi has received a proposal from Besiktas who are pushing for a deal to sign the Ukraine international.
The 30-year-old only signed for Marseille in an obligated €10m permanent deal this summer after spending last season on loan with the French side, but could be allowed to leave after making just 13 starts in Ligue 1 last season.
The arrivals of Iliman Ndiaye from Sheffield United and Ismaïla Sarr from Watford have also increased competition for places in attacking areas,
The Ukrainian is regarded as a set-piece specialist and formed part of the Atalanta team that secured three consecutive top-three finishes in Serie A. He led the league for assists in 2020/21.
