Runner-up to Paris Saint-Germain last season and qualified for the next Champions League, Olympique de Marseille now intends to take advantage of the summer window to achieve an ambitious transfer window and thus appear at its best on the European scene during the next exercise.

Author of 4 assists and 2 goals in 44 matches in all competitions last season, Bazoer is therefore about to give a new turn to his career.
