Marseille are stepping up their bid to sign a high profile striker to aid their Champions League push. The current Ligue 1 champions are considering three players according to reports from France; Chelsea’s Didier Drogba, Fiorentina’s Alberto Gilardino and Ajax’s Luis Suarez.

The Stade Velodrome outfit feel they have the funds to bag at least one of these high profile targets according to La Provence. Currently only a concrete asking price is known for Gilardino, with Fiorentina wanting €15M to allow their Italy international to depart.

Didier Deschamps’ team could yet lose Mamadou Niang, despite stating that they did not wish to sell their striker. Turkish giants Fenerbahce remain interested and Niang would welcome the move.
