MARSEILLE: Monaco's French forward Valere Germain is set to follow in his father's footsteps and play for Marseille next season, former defender Bruno Germain said Thursday.

"It's Valere's choice. He made the decision a while ago to join OM," Germain Snr, a defender with Marseille during the club's golden era in the 1990s, told La Provence newspaper.

Marseille have yet to confirm the recruitment of the 27-year-old forward, who scored ten goals last season to help Monaco lift the Ligue 1 title.

Germain was however overshadowed at Monaco last season by teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe.

French media are reporting the transfer to be worth in the region of 10 million euros ($11 million).

"The club has been close to his heart since he was a child. He always said he wanted to join Marseille," added Bruno Germain, who won the French league title three times between 1989 and 1991 and finished runner-up in the Champions League final in 1991.
