Marseille has shown interest in Roma’s full-back, Zeki Celik, with Roma keen to let him go in this January transfer window.
According to renowned sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, the French club has already enquired about the Turkish player. However, before a deal can be hashed out, the club must first arrange the transfer of Jonathan Clauss, their current full-back, who also hails from France. This move could potentially free up the role for Celik to step into.
Roma acquired the services of Celik in a deal that saw him being a prominent part of the squad. However, it is being speculated that the Italian club is now looking for opportunities to offload the player. Celik, who plays as a right-back, was widely seen as a valuable addition to the Roma squad.
The imminent transfer negotiations could add another dynamic layer to the on-going January transfer window. If the transfer were to go ahead, it could be a significant development for both the clubs and the player himself, who could get a fresh start at a new club.
