Olympique de Marseille are in the running to pick up Stephane Sessegnon after he was released by West Bromwich Albion last month, according to France Football

The former Sunderland attacking midfielder has previous when it comes to playing French football, having made his name in France playing for Le Mans and later Paris Saint-Germain, before the days of Nasser Al Khelaifi and the mega spending.

His departure was met with derision from many at the Hawthorns, who, despite his inconsistency, was valued for his attacking flair, something the Baggies have lacked and their fans have been yearning for under Tony Pulis.

Marseille are currently looking to rebuild after a disastrous campaign last season, one that saw them teeter on the edge of relegation and one that has now seen many star names leave the club.

Michy Batshuayi is one of the standout names to have jumped ship, joining Chelsea earlier this month, and the latest escapee is set to be Georges-Kevin N'Koudou who, according to ESPN, is due to have a medical with Tottenham Hotspur later on today.

Sessegnon would be a breath of fresh air for Marseille, as a player coming in rather than heading out.

The Benin international, who has over 60 caps to his name, is an attacking play-maker by trade, and he proved himself to be a real live wire after he joined Sunderland during the 2010-11 season.

He left to join West Brom in 2013, but he has only shown glimpses of what he is capable, netting nine goals during his time at The Hawthorns.
