Guillermo Ochoa wants Marseille move

Guillermo Ochoa has revealed he would relish a move to Marseille in the summer transfer window to help further his ambitions of playing in the Champions League.

Ochoa, 28, is out of contract at Ajaccio in June after spending three years with the Corsican club.

Though the Mexico international will likely have no shortage of suitors, he hopes to remain in France where he has established himself as one of Ligue 1's premier goalkeepers.
With OM's current first-choice shot-stopper, Steve Mandanda, likely to move on in the summer, Ochoa has opened the door to himself making the short hop across the Mediterranean to the Stade Velodrome, despite the 1992-93 Champions League winners being all but certain to miss out on the competition next season.
"Of course I would like to go there. They're a big team with great ambitions," the former Club America keeper, who recently admitted he had been close to joining OM's arch-rivals Paris Saint-Germain in 2011, told Canal+.

"I like the football here. It's improved. You can see more and more good players. I like this country a lot.

"It makes me dream every time I see the Champions League. I hope one day to be able to play matches at that level. My priority is to stay in France. My agent is busying himself with that."

Ajaccio drew 1-1 with Bordeaux on Saturday to earn a stay of execution, as they sit rooted to the bottom of the table and 15 points from safety with just five games remaining.
