complete its first recruit. The Phocaean club has made official the transfer of Gerson from Flamengo and can now look at other tracks. Indeed, Pablo Longoria continues to supervise defenders, especially since Duje Caleta-Car could leave the Canebiere this summer. To replace him, several names are cited in Marseille. But according to the latest information, the Phocaean leaders have a priority for this position. It would be David Luiz.
The interest of OM for the Brazilian defender, free since his departure from Arsenal, is not new. A few days ago, Pablo Pavan, Jorge Sampaoli’s biographer, said that OM, and especially its coach, wanted to acquire the services of David Luiz. At first, it was just an interest, but the Phocaean leaders have decided to move up a gear in this matter.
As explained by L’Équipe, Olympique de Marseille went on the offensive, making an offer to the Brazilian defender. For the moment, no amount has been revealed, but the proposal of OM would be much higher than that of Benfica, which is also working on this defensive track. This offer from Marseille does not leave the 34-year-old defender unmoved.
