French Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille have reportedly joined the race to sign Manchester City forward Wilfried Bony.
The Ivory Coast international looks sure to leave the Citizens in coming weeks, having failed to make the desired impact since his £28 million from Swansea City two years ago.

Bony, who spent last season on loan at Stoke City, has also been linked with a move back to the Liberty Stadium with the Swans desperate to boost their attacking options.
Reports in France, though, suggest that the club will face stiff competition from Marseille for the 28-year-old's services. According to La Provence informal talks have already taken place between club and player as OL aim to beat the Welsh club to the burly forward's signature.
Lille, Fenerbahce and clubs in China are also reportedly interested in signing the striker.
