Marseille close in on new keeper

French giants Marseille are on the verge of signing Le Havre goalkeeper Brice Samba, according to L’Equipe.

With experienced shot-stopper Gennaro Bracigliano nearing the end of his deal at Stade Velodrome, OM officials have started the search for a player who would act as a back-up to first choice keeper Steve Mandanda.

The Ligue 1 giants were linked with a number of talented goalkeepers, but it appears they have opted for Le Havre hotshot Brice Samba.

L’Equipe reports that the two clubs are on the verge of reaching an agreement that would take the Congolese keeper to Stade Velodrome.

Samba, 18, has only made one appearance for Le Havre, but he has featured 26 times for club’s B side that compete in the fourth tier of France’s league system.

He is, nonetheless, considered one of the most talented goalkeepers in France and will now get a chance to continue his development at one of the biggest European clubs.
