Marseille attacker Lucas Ocampos might leave the club this summer according to well known agent Bruno Satin.

According to him, the future of the Marseille player is in doubt with several clubs interested in him.

Manchester United and Chelsea were interested in him before he left Argentine club River Plate for European football and he has also been linked with a summer move to Everton.

The Toffees want to bolster their squad ahead of the new season scheduled for August and Lucas Ocampos is on the list of their transfer targets.

Another player that could join Everton is Andre Gomes after the Merseysiders agreed on a £22m deal with Barcelona for the Portuguese international star.

Andre Gomes spent last season on loan at Everton and they have decided to sign him permanently from the Spanish champions after he impressed a great deal during the 2018/19 campaign.

Bruno Satin also pointed out that a transfer this summer might be unlikely after Lucas Ocampos was sent out after he was left out of the 23-man Argentina squad to the ongoing COPA America tournament in Brazil.

Lucas Ocampos scored five goals and also provided eight assists in 40 appearances in all competitions during the just concluded season as Marseille missed out on Champions League football via a fifth-placed finish.
