As every evening FCM offers you the 3 OM news of the day! On the program this Sunanche: New for Mertens, Tudor called Tameze, Yan Couto in the sights.

Mercato OM: Tudor called one of its former players?

Olympique de Marseille signed Igor Tudor a few days ago after the departure of Jorge Sampaoli… According to Foot Mercato, the Croatian coach contacted Adrien Tameze, midfielder from Hellas Verona, his former club.

With the arrival of Igor Tudor, the Commandery will take on an Italian accent! The Croatian coach coached Hellas Verona in Serie A and spent many years at Juventus as a player but also assistant to Andrea Pirlo.

Call between Igor Tudor and Adrien Tameze?

The ex-defender has not forgotten some of his players in Verona. According to Foot Mercato, the new coach of Olympique de Marseille would have contacted Adrien Tameze, his former player. The French midfielder and the Croatian coach would have spoken on the phone but we do not know the content of this conversation.

In any case, the former midfielder of OGC Nice would be on the transfer market. It would be valued at 10 million euros by the Italian club, a possible sum for a visit to Olympique de Marseille. Asked about this by La Provence, Tameze had not hidden the possibility of joining OM.

If Coach Tudor calls me, I’ll think about it… — Tameze

“Marseilles remains Marseilles. I feel very good in Italy, it’s not in my plans to return to France, but sometimes there are opportunities that arise. No, but Marseille is not just anywhere! I speak with teams in Italy, it is really not topical. But it’s true that if the coach calls me, I’ll think about it.” Adrian Tameze – Source: Provence (04/07/22)

It is very important to have a consensus with the coach — Longoria

“It is normal that there are changes in the search for profiles. A player who is comfortable in one style of play, is not necessarily so in another. Last year, we started on profiles to have possession in the middle of the field and we had in particular Boubacar Kamara who had this role of central midfielder. With Igor’s way of playing, the two midfielders will have different characteristics with more intensity, an ability to occupy space. The strategy will therefore change for certain positions. As we said at the last press conference, the objective is to increase the quality of the squad, while giving continuity to the team. With the Champions League, I think we have to sign 5 to 8 players. During the transfer window, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach. I have always said that good leaders are those who have a good ability to adapt, to the club, to the city and to the identity. And also an adaptation to a new coach and his style of play. You must always meet the expectations of a new coach since it is he who will develop the players. » Pablo Longoria Press conference (05/07/2022).

Mercato OM: Something new in the Dries Mertens file!

Announced in the sights of Olympique de Marseille, Dries Mertens would have received a great offer from Napoli!

Dries Mertens said a few weeks ago that he wanted to continue his adventure with Napoli. At the end of the contract, his representatives would also try to find him a way out in the event of a disagreement with the Italian club.

Napoli want to keep Mertens?

The latter would have been seen in Marseille in recent days to discuss with the management of OM… According to La Provence, this information is false and the Belgian’s agents are simply trying to raise the stakes with Napoli.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Napoli have no intention of recovering Paulo Dybala, also cited as a track of the Italian club… Sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli, on the other hand, would have said that an offer has been sent to the Mertens clan for a new contract at 2 .5 million euros per year… It would have been refused.

Mertens, age is still important – Acherchour

Walid Acherchour during the program “After Foot” recognizes the player’s talent but does not understand the idea behind this long-term recruitment, to a position where Dimitri Payet is still performing well.

“The guy is the top scorer in the history of Napoli, so of course he can stack goals and he knows how to stack them. For me, the big problem is in relation to what Olympique de Marseille has in store, in its profile that today Mertens plays either in the role of false number 9, or the role of second attacker in number 10 in a 4-2-3-1 is how he played behind Osimhen this season. And I’m sorry but from the moment you already have a player like Payet who plays in this position, who was very good last year. Mertens, age is still important, how many years of contract are you going to give him, 2 years, 1 year? I have no problem with the player, he can bring you Champions League experience next year, etc. No problem, in addition I really like the player but next March he will be 36 years old, I am fed up with Olympique de Marseille, players who come each time with short contracts, the coach next year he will have to separate from Mertens and go find another guy. » Walid Acherchour Source: RMC SPORT (07/07/2022)

Mercato: OM interested in a Manchester City side?

Pol Lirola did not convince last season. Will another player be needed in this position? According to UOL Esporte, Olympique de Marseille would have checked the name of a young Manchester City side, Yan Couto.

Olympique de Marseille needs recruits this summer… New coach Igor Tudor has had to target the positions he needs for the coming season. The full-back position seems very important in their system and OM have had problems in this same position for several seasons.

Yan Couto in the sights of OM?

According to information from UOL Esporte, for the right side, Olympique de Marseille would have ticked the name of Yan Couto. The Brazilian is under contract with Manchester City and was loaned out to Braga last season. Aged 20, he could again be loaned by the English club.
