Having left for Mönchengladbach 4 years ago, Alassane Pléa could return to Ligue 1 this summer, OM and Nice would have checked his name to strengthen their attack.
Party of Nice in 2018 to try the adventure at Borussia Monchengladbachwhere he scored 47 goals and 28 assists in 142 matches and even discovered the France team (10 minutes against Uruguay in November 2018), Alassane Pléa would have refused the German club’s extension offer and could return to France this summer.
And it is precisely in Nice that the 29-year-old striker could return. According to information from The TeamLucien Favre, who left at the same time as Pléa in 2018, would be seduced by the idea of bringing back the one who had planted 16 times during his last season in the French championship.
🔄 OM have checked the name of Alassane Plea (29), as a potential recruit for their transfer window. The club will first have to sell one of its attackers.
Nice and Everton are also interested. Monchengladbach is asking €8m for Plea, who would see himself returning to L1. (@lequipe) #TeamOM pic.twitter.com/YaNRy4FVHI

In the south, Marseille would also have ticked the name of the former Lyonnais, but it will first be necessary to slim down a workforce which has 4 top strikers (Milik, Dieng, Bakambu and Luis Suarez). One year from the end of his contract, Pléa would cost only 8 million euros, a boon for the Marseille club.
The two Riviera clubs will however have to be wary of competition in the Premier League. The French daily explains thatEverton and other clubs whose names have not leaked, would also follow the situation of the native of Lille, author of 10 goals and 8 assists in the Bundesliga last season.
