Without a club since the end of his adventure at Atletico Madrid, Diego Costa was offered to Olympique de Marseille, which did not follow up.
Pablo Longoria spares no effort on the transfer front. With some success since two cases have already been settled. TheOlympic Marseille recorded his first recruit on Tuesday thanks to the loan of Pol Lirola and a departure was also recorded, that of Kevin strootman, in the process of being loaned to Genoa. However, the priority issue of the Phocaeans remains to be resolved, that of the attacker.
The director of football of OM has however multiplied the tracks in recent weeks. Many names have indeed been mentioned, including those ofArkadiusz Milik (Naples), from Gaëtan Laborde (Montpellier), from Christian Kouame (Fiorentina) or Patrick cutrone (Wolverhampton). The first named, deadlocked in Napoli, seems to have the priority of the Marseille leaders but the discussions are struggling to move forward given the financial demands of the Neapolitan leaders and the limits in the matter of the vice-champions of France.
To believe Provence, another name recently appeared in the file, that of Diego Costa. The Spain international recently left theAtletico Madrid and is therefore without a club. And according to the regional daily, the former Blue was offered to OM. But if the Brazilian seems really tempted by an adventure with the Sky and White, the interest would not be shared. In any case, Pablo Longoria would not have followed up, preferring to concentrate his efforts on other tracks. Tracks probably less expensive since Diego Costa signed to 8 million euros at Atletico.
