Directly qualified for the Champions League, Olympique de Marseille is looking for a versatile striker to flesh out its attacking sector. And the Marseille team could soon reach the goal with Justin Kluivert, for whom a first offer has been sent to Roma.
Freed from the DNCG obstacle, Longoria will be able to move forward.
Apart from Nemanja Radonjic, Olympique de Marseille have not lost a striker this summer, but that does not prevent them from wanting to recruit one quickly. With the Champions League playing, the recent 2nd in Ligue 1 is looking for versatility in the attacking sector, a player capable of scoring and scoring.
Several names have been mentioned since the start of the transfer window, the loudest often rhyming with fake news, but one track seems more serious than the others: Justin Kluivert (23), back at Roma after two years on loan from Leipzig then Nice.
A first offer of €10 million
The son of the legend Patrick Kluivert does not however intend to leave immediately. He wants to convince his trainer Jos Mourinho, and win over Roma. But the Portuguese technician does not seem willing to give him a chance, especially since his contract (until 2023, editor’s note) almost obliges his leaders to sell him this summer. The latter are therefore open to discussion, and OM quickly sat down at the negotiating table through the Longoria-Ribalta duo, who have an excellent network in Italy.
The Marseille president and sporting director greatly appreciate the profile of the player trained at Ajax Amsterdam, who rightly hurt OM very badly last season in the Coupe de France with a double scored (4-1). And the departure of coach Jorge Sampaoli hasn’t changed that. so much so that a first concrete offer would have been sent to Roma recently, according to information from Corriere dello Sport. height of 10 million euros, while Roma would expect 12.
Monaco and Nice in the running
Will President Longoria make an effort and add two million euros to prevent the competition from stealing the versatile winger from him? It has the means since the owner Frank McCourt injected money into the club in order to pass the obstacle of the DNCG without incident. But beware, because the other suitors also have economic arguments to make: Nice, owned by INEOS, and Monaco, which belongs to the Russian oligarch Dmitri Rybolovlev, are announced on the rows in Ligue 1.
