Marseille make opening offer for Roma midfielder Strootman

Olympique Marseille have been encouraged in their pursuit of AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

OM have kicked off talks with Roma this week about a deal for the Holland international - and it's emerged Roma are willing to do business.

Foot Mercato says a first offer of €25m cash has been tabled by OM for Strootman, plus a further €500,000 bonus.

However, Roma are insisting they go higher with days just away from the European market closing.

Strootman has also been tabled a deal worth €6m-a-year.
