Sporting Gijon keen as Marseille chief Zubi in Argentina for Marcus Acuna talks

Sporting Gijon are competing with Olympique Marseille for Racing Club midfielder Marcus Acuna.

Marseille chief Andoni Zubizarreta has flown to Argentina to check on Acuna and sound out Racing about a fee for the player.

However, La Voz de Asturias says Sporting are also in contact with Racing for Acuna.

Zubi and OM are regarded as favourites to land Acuna - with a deal proposed for January.

However, in Spain it's claimed, if OM cannot get a deal done, Sporting will step in with the view to landing Acuna for the summer market.
