The Lirola and Wass files still pending, OM would work to complete a completely different transfer. Offensive that one.
With the recruitment of eight reinforcements already in this offseason – most of them aligned in Montpellier on Sunday evening with the convincing performance that we know (2-3 victory at La Mosson at the opening of the championship), loon has not finished with the overhaul of its workforce. Beyond the announced sales and other probable departures of Benedetto, Caleta-Car, Radonjic, even Kamara, the Marseille club plans to further strengthen its line-up.
Pablo Longoria breathed it recently at a press conference: the objective is to double each position to better understand the challenges to come – the Europa League included. In addition to Daniel Wass and Pol Lirola, for whom the Olympians have advanced their pawns with Valencia and Fiorentina – with offers now looking like an ultimatum (transfer to 1.5 million euros for one; paid loan and with a mandatory option of 12 million euros for the other), OM is working to poach a final offensive player. Except departure which would immediately be compensated.
After having long run the promising hares that his Thiago Almada and Amine Adli, Marseille, in front of the intransigence of the leaders of Velez Sarsfield and TFC, would look more into the case of Zinedine Ferhat from now on. The Algerian international was one of the great revelations of Nîmes Olympique last season, with a cumulative 6 goals and 10 assists in L1. He could be an alternative of choice, and at a lower cost, for OM who would see in him a possible winger but also and above all a potential lining of Payet. Several internal sources confirm discussions well advanced between the three parties. The ninth recruit from Marseille?
