Olympique Marseille have joined the interest in Real Madrid striker Javier Saviola.

DiarioSport says Marseille could seal a deal for Saviola in January, which would include Real securing first option on their young star Samir Nasri.

Marseille sports chief Jose Anigo is a big fan of Argentine talent and is currently in Buenos Aries checking on the availability of Rodrigo Palacio (Boca Juniors) and German Denis (Independiente).
