Marseille has agreed to sign Tunisia international Saber Khlifa from Evian subject to a medical.

Last season's French league runner-up says it has agreed a deal in principle for Khlifa and the striker will undergo a medical ''at the end of the week.''

The 26-year-old Khlifa made 83 appearances in two seasons at Evian and scored 25 goals, including a stunning strike from inside his own half against Nice last campaign.

Several clubs were interested in Khlifa but he opted for Marseille and Champions League football.
