Man Utd and Chelsea transfer blow with Lens star ‘Jonathan Clauss undergoing Marseille medical after bid accepted’ | The Sun

JONATHAN CLAUSS is undergoing a medical at Marseille ahead of a £6.8million move from Lens, according to reports.

Manchester United and Chelsea have both been tracking the full-back.

But he appears set to snub the Premier League to stay in Ligue 1.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Clauss is on the verge of signing for Marseille after arriving in the city to undergo his medical.

Despite strong interest in the 29-year-old wing-back from England, Lens have accepted just £6.8m for him from a Ligue 1 rival.

He will join Granada's Luis Suarez as a new addition for l'OM.

Clauss had just one year remaining on his Lens contract.

He joined them in 2020 after working his way up the leagues in France and then Germany.

Clauss played in the French lower divisions before signing for second-tier German side Arminia Bielefeld.

After joining Lens following their promotion to Ligue 1, Clauss made his first ever top-flight appearance aged 28.

His performances have been so impressive that he has attracted the attention of France boss Didier Deschamps.

He made his international debut in March this year and has earned four caps for Les Bleus.

Getting regular game time is a key factor in Clauss' move, with selection for this winter's World Cup in Qatar to think about.

Chelsea already have Reece James as their undisputed first choice right wing-back.

Although Man United's starting spot ahead of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot could be up for grabs.
