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.
The leaders of Olympique de Marseille intend to raise the stakes to recover a nice check in the Kevin Strootman file.
Having relaunched, since last January, at Genoa in Serie A, the 31-year-old midfielder still has two years of contract with Marseille. Not falling within the plans of Jorge Sampaoli for the next sporting year, Kevin Strootman will most likely be sold on the transfer market this summer. In order to recover as much cash as possible, Marseille officials will play the watch and raise the stakes between the contenders of the former AS Roma according to information from La Repubblica.

Author of four assists in 18 games of the Italian championship, Kevin Strootman convinced the leaders of Genoa. The Serie A team will try to recruit the Dutchman definitively in the coming weeks. It will have to face competition from Cagliari who would have also activated this track. For his part, the experienced midfielder wants to stay in Italy and relaunch his career.
