The Croatian defender retains a good rating in England and will not be selected.
OM President met Frank McCourt to refine the recruitment strategy.
OM’s summer transfer window, led by President Longoria, really opened with the announcement about Gerson.
The Argentine coach was very keen on the Brazilian’s profile.
The technician is expecting many recruits.
And all the more so given the many departures with which OM must compose, including those of Florian Thauvin or Hiroki Sakai.
In midfield, OM set their sights on Gerson.
The Flamengo player should replace Kamara.
The arrival of the Brazilian will cost OM 20 million euros.
Expectations are high for the Brazilian.
Bleuet is the other priority target of Marseille leaders.
The player is no longer in Arsenal’s plans and comes out of a successful loan to Herta Berlin.
If the Guendouzi track fails, OM could activate the one leading to Francis Coquelin, who has an exit ticket at Villarreal.
In central defense, OM are interested in William Saliba, deadlocked at Arsenal and loaned for the last six months in Nice.
Another OM target, Jonathan Gradit, very prominent with Lens.
Anthony Caci would also be on the shelves of OM.
But the first recruit of Pablo Longoria could be named Christian Joel, young Cuban goalkeeper from Gijon, expected to play the liners.
OM are also in advanced contact with Thiago Almada, who has already said yes to Ciel et Blanc.
Courted by Liverpool last winter, Duje Caleta-Car keeps the odds in the Premier League.
Under contract with OM until June 2023, the Croatian defender should not go on forever – The Athletics taking as proof the interest already asserted by West Ham.
The Hammers, who in the past had bet on a certain Dimitri Payet, would offer 15 million euros to the Marseillais to debauch the 24-year-old colossus.
Pablo Longoria, the Marseille president would nevertheless require a minimum of 20 million euros for the former player of Salzburg, recruited for 19 million in 2018.
