Determined to strike hard during the next summer transfer window, Olympique de Marseille is interested in an Argentinian pearl.
The summer promises once again to be eventful on the side of Marseilles. And if the news of the transfers of Ciel et Blanc is currently overwhelmed by the possible departures of Florian Thauvin, Arkadiusz Milik or Boubacar Kamara, Marseille leaders are also active in the direction of arrivals. The latter should be numerous, Jorge Sampaoli, landed in the heart of winter counting on the next transfer market to reshape the Olympian workforce.
Several names have already been mentioned, including those of Arturo Vidal, Alexander Nübel, Federico Bernadeschi or Thiago Almada. Recently questioned about the last named, Pablo Longoria had not denied the interest of the Phoceans for the young Argentinian. ” I don’t like to talk about names until the operation is done, he had launched. It’s normal for the press to come out with names. What I can confirm is that we are working a lot to position ourselves on the players who are our first choices. We are going to create a mix between experienced players, who can overcome the pressure, and young players. There will be nuggets, but also experienced players. “
Already among the best at his post
Velez Sarfield’s player clearly counts in the category “Nuggets”. A specialist in Argentine football, Nico De la Rua has drawn up a glowing picture of the native of Buenos Aires. ” It’s a number 10 or a nine and a half. He can also play on the sides, although I prefer him on the axis. He dribbles, he hits and he is very fair in his passes and in the finish. At his age, he already takes the game of his team on his own, he described for the site Le Phocéen. A small template not very strong, but very solid on its supports. We are really talking about an exceptional player, already among the best in his position. This is the future of Argentine football at his post and I think he will arrive very quickly in the A. “
Olympique de Marseille is not the only club to make the eyes soft on the young attacking midfielder. Inter Milan and Manchester United would be among his contenders but OM have the advantage of being able to offer him a starting place.
