REPORT: Marseille close to signing Brassier from Brest

The Pirates centre-back is nearing a departure from Stade Francis-Le Ble after three years.

Brest defender Lilian Brassier is close to joining Marseille after three years with Les Pirates.

Brassier moved to Brest from Rennes in the summer of 2021 and has featured in 117 games for Les Ti'Zefs, with 108 coming in Ligue 1

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Brassier will not be a Brest player for much longer as Marseille seem primed to bring the 24-year-old to the Velodrome this summer. 

Per Romano’s report, the defender will sign a five-year deal with the club who recently appointed Roberto De Zerbi, with Les Olympiens confident a deal will be agreed sooner rather than later. 

Marseille finished last season outside the continental positions in eighth, five behind Best who ended in the Champions League positions. 

Brassier made 30 appearances for Les Pirates at centre-back, playing a pivotal role in the club reaching Europe's top club competition for the first time.
