Olympique Marseille targets Justin Kluivert

French Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille are reportedly interested in signing Dutch youngster Justin Kluivert.

Kluivert spent last season on loan with RB Leipzig.

The Bundesliga side have the option to make the winger’s signing permanent.

However, it is unclear whether RB Leipzig wants to trigger the deal.

That would mean Kluivert returns to AS Roma this summer and his future in Italy is also up in the air.

He seemed to have no chance of playing time in Serie A but the appointment of Jose Mourinho may change that.

Kluivert also has another option with L’Equipe reporting that Marseille are interested in bringing the 22-year-old to France this summer.

The Ligue 1 side are keeping a close eye on Kluivert’s situation and could swoop later in the summer.

Who is Kluivert?

Kluivert is a son of former Dutch international football player Patrick and grandson of former Surinamese football player Kenneth.

Justin began his career at Ajax, coming through the youth system.

After playing for two seasons with the Dutch side, in 2018 the youngster moved to Italian side Roma for €18.75 million.

He also represented the Netherlands internationally, first at youth level from 2013, before making his senior debut in 2018.

The 22-year-old has four brothers, including footballer Ruben who is currently playing for the Jong Utrecht.
