OM Mercato: Everything is accelerating at Olympique Marseille, which, after the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, is getting closer to a great signing in the Bundesliga.
OM Mercato : Longoria negotiates for a defender from Frankfurt
This week, Olympique Marseille has accelerated its summer mercato. The Phocaean team, which recently recruited Jordan Veretout, concluded Tuesday evening the arrival of Alexis Sanchez. Free of any contract after his departure from Inter Milan, the Chilean international arrived in the city of Marseille to undergo his medical and then sign with OM. But the Marseille management does not intend to stop its ambitious recruitment, other recruits are expected in the Phocaean city by the end of the summer mercato.
Moreover, La Provence reveals this Wednesday a new track explored by the Marseille decision makers. The local media explains that OM insists on acquiring the services of Evan Ndicka (22). The French defender, who was once considered by PSG and AS Monaco, is currently playing for Eintracht Frankfurt, where his contract expires in June 2023. Despite the various offers made by his management, the young player still refuses to extend his contract. His permanent refusal puts the German leaders back to the wall. They will have to sell him this summer to avoid that he leaves free in a year. OM would like to take advantage of this situation to attract him to its nets. The objective of Marseille would be to anticipate the probable departure of Duje Caleta-Car, pushed towards the exit.
OM Mercato : Strootman included in the deal for Evan Ndicka
According to the source, the leaders of Olympique Marseille and their counterparts in Frankfurt are currently in advanced negotiations for the transfer of Evan Ndicka. Both clubs are very optimistic about the outcome of this deal, which could be concluded as soon as possible. And another good news for Marseille fans: the deal could include Kevin Strootman in the operation.
Still according to the media, the last winner of the Europa League would like to get the Dutch midfielder in exchange for Evan Ndicka. An arrangement that does not displease the Marseillais. On the contrary, the management of OM, which wants to separate from Kevin Strootman for several months, would already agree to send him to the Bundesliga. It remains to be seen what the main player thinks. Negotiations between the various parties should intensify in the coming days. A new big move is being prepared by Olympique Marseille.
