Marseille want in on North American talent

Sources have confirmed to MLS Transfers that French club Marseille are ready to cash in on the relatively low transfer value of North and Central American players, with scouts located in Canada, the United States and Mexico.

Well before CONCACAF's incredible World Cup run, Marseille had a plan to start scouting in places not many of their Ligue 1 rivals were. Because ownership has pulled back spending, they are in the market for young, (and over time) high value players.

One of the players taking notice is 22 year old Harry Shipp. Shipp was scouted most recently in the All Star Homegrown Game on August 4th. There are more plans to see the youngster in action August 30th as the Fire take on FC Dallas. 

While no other names have been confirmed, expect more players throughout the top leagues in the America's to be evaluated in the coming months.
