West Ham, Southampton target Bouna Sarr accepts Marseille need to sell

Olympique Marseille fullback Bouna Sarr is staying calm over talk of a summer sale.

It's been suggested Sarr could be sold to help Marseille balance the books - with West Ham and Southampton keen.

Sarr told Le Phoceen: "Of course it's always a pleasure. After that, I manage to ignore all of this now with my age. I am 28 years old so I also have this experience of knowing how to take a step back from everything we can see and read.

"Me, of course, I always said that my dream was to play the Champions League with Olympique de Marseille. But after, there are certain elements that we do not control.

"I will not go into details but we see that the club needs money, is a little in financial difficulty, so the decisions I will not be alone to make them."
