Although a fee is not reported, it is expected that the Londoners will now try and convince the player before Monday’s transfer deadline.

Caleta-Car, 25, joined Marseille in 2018 following a £17m move from RB Salzburg.

Since joining the Ligue 1 giants, the 25-year-old has gone on to feature in just over 100 matches, in all competitions, scoring four goals, along the way.

The commanding defender is also a full-fledged international after representing his country on 20 different occasions.
