In a surprise move, Josh Doig has been linked with Olympique Marseille. The unexpected development comes after the Scottish left back was rumoured to be leaving Verona. This unexpected twist was reportedly led by surprise intervention from Gattuso, a largely untold story about the left-back’s departure from Verona.
As reported by reputable Italian football journalism site, Alfredopedulla.com, Sassuolo tabled a lucrative offer of €6 million, plus potential bonuses, in an attempt to secure Doig’s services. However, it is suggested that the Scot is more keen to make his move to OM – his first preference.
Doig and his team were reportedly waiting for OM’s counter-offer which, from the player’s perspective, gained their trust. Now, according to the same source, it’s revealed that the finish line for this transfer story is just within reach. This comes just hours before a crucial survival battle for Verona, who face Empoli in a must-win contest.
There had been speculation yesterday around the possibility of fielding Doig for the impending match. However, the transfer story that shocked many four days ago is now just a formal step away from culmination. The final details of the negotiation are expected to be wrapped up soon.
