Olympique de Marseille is looking to strengthen itself during the winter transfer window. But his priority track leading to Leandro Trossard is about to fail.
Third in Ligue 1 five small units behind the Parisian leader and two behind the Lensois dolphin, Olympique de Marseille had a good first half of the season. But while the winter transfer window is in full swing, President Pablo Longoria is busy finding reinforcements and strengthening his workforce a little more. While the Matteo Guendouzi file speak, that the trail leading to young hopeful Alberto Moleiro is mentioned, and that the extension of Sead Kolasinac seems on the right track, the Marseille club is about to lose a battle in another case.
Because after enlisting Ruslan Malinovsky, Marseille recruiters hoped to offer the services of another international. Belgian this one. For a while, Leandro Trossard had been in the sights of Pablo Longoria. The manager had thus targeted the attacking midfielder of Brighton and intended to convince him of the benefit for him of joining the Canebière. But Arsenal’s interest in the 28-year-old has seriously reshuffled the cards.
As reminded The Team this Thursday, Marseille had been in discussion for several weeks with the representatives of Leandro Trossard, but the Belgian is now much more attracted by the proposal made by the Gunners. The sports daily even ensures that the two parties are now “very close to an agreement on the conditions of the contract”. In turn, OM’s hopes have been dashed and optimism is no longer on the agenda in this case. The possible transfer of the midfielder should amount to between twenty and twenty-five million euros.
