Inter Milan midfielder Lucien Agoume is keeping Olympique Marseille waiting as he’s still hoping to seal a move to Sevilla.
The 21-year-old is currently at the very bottom of Simone Inzaghi’s pecking order in the middle of the park.
Hakan Calhanoglu, Nicolo Barella, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Davide Frattesi, Kristjan Asllani, Davy Klaassen, and Stefan Sensi are all ahead of him, which places him eighth on the list.
The Frenchman only made one brief appearance this season. It came in the away victory over Salernitana.
Therefore, Inter are hellbent on finding him new accommodation in January.
According to Calciomercato, the Nerazzurri have found an agreement in principle with Marseille.
The 21-year-old would join Gennaro Gattuso’s ranks on loan with the option to make his stay permanent at the end of the season.
But as the source explains, the France U21 starlet is keeping the Ligue 1 side on hold as he’s still holding out for a transfer to Sevilla.

The Andalusians have been keeping tabs on the situation in recent weeks. Apparently, the player is intrigued by the possibility of playing in La Liga.
Therefore, he has asked for time to reflect on the transfer to Marseille, while hoping that Sevilla make a concrete approach in the meantime.
Agoume started his career at Sochaux before joining Inter in 2019. He spent the last three campaigns on loan at Spezia, Brest and Troyes respectively.
The defensive midfielder’s contract with the Nerazzurri is valid until the summer of 2025.
