Arsenal, Napoli and Bayern Munich target rules out Marseille exit

Marseille defender Nicolas N'Koulou has ruled out leaving the Ligue 1 club in the January transfer window.

Marseille are currently sixth in Ligue 1 and the defender has been strongly linked with the likes of Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Napoli and Monaco.

“Leaving in the winter? I am no coward,” he told France Football.

“I am not happy with what I have showed recently, so in such circumstances I won’t leave.

“I owe a lot to l’OM who made me make a name for myself. It is very important for me to find again my best level first.”
