Valencia winger Joaquin is a target for Olympique Marseille.

The French giants are turning to Joaquin after pulling the plug on negotiations for Inter Milan winger Amantino Mancini.

A representative of Joaquin told RMC last night: "Given the importance of the player, it is clear that in Ligue 1 only Lyon, Marseille and Bordeaux can afford my client.

"It's nice to know that l'OM are interested in him."
