Five Premier League teams are interested in signing Marseille midfielder Alaixys Romao this summer, report Sky Sports.

The 30-year-old, who has been capped 48 times by Togo at senior international level, has been a first-team regular at the Stade Velodrome since arriving from Lorient in January 2013.

However, Marseille are apparently ready to offload a whole host of players at the end of the season following a disappointing campaign. Last year’s runners-up are currently sixth in the Ligue 1 table with two games left to play.

Romao, has two years to run on his current contract, but according to Sky Sports, Marseille could be willing to sell him for a fee in the region of £2.4m.

Sky also claim that West Ham United, Everton, Sunderland, Newcastle United and Hull City are among Romao’s admirers and that the player himself would welcome a move to England.

Romao, who can operate as a central defender as well as in midfield, has made 34 Ligue 1 appearances this season, scoring one goal.

He has also featured five times in the Champions League this term.

His previous clubs include Toulouse, Louhans-Cuiseaux and Grenoble.
