OM Mercato : A Serie A striker to replace Milik
Will Arkadiusz Milik play for Olympique of Marseille next season? For the moment, it is still unclear what his future holds. The Polish striker knows a decline in recent weeks. His performance at OM this season is far from satisfactory, as evidenced by his disappointing performance against Feyenoord in the semi-final second leg of the Europa League Conference. Uninspired and lacking confidence, Milik missed his game against the Dutch and could see his future in Marseille questioned.
In conflict for several weeks with his coach Jorge Sampaoli, the striker now seems to be close to the exit door. Especially since OM, faced with financial problems, is still struggling to raise its purchase option estimated at 12 million euros. If his situation is not resolved by June 30, the 28-year-old will return to Napoli. Moreover, the Phocaeans are already working behind the scenes on his succession. To replace him, the Marseille management is considering attracting a new center forward from Serie A.
Marseille returns to the charge for Giovanni Simeone
The journalist Ignazio Genuardi says that Olympique of Marseille is very interested in the Hellas Verona striker Giovanni Simeone, currently on loan from Cagliari. The Argentine striker is a long time target of OM. During the last summer mercato, the Marseille leaders had done everything to recruit him, in vain. The son of Diego Simeone, coach of Atletico Madrid, had finally decided to join Verona.
However, the OM does not let go. According to the source, Jorge Sampaoli is a great admirer of Giovanni Simeone, who is having a great season in Serie A with 16 goals and 4 assists in 32 games. The 26-year-old player could land at the Velodrome this summer, but everything will depend on the Milik file.
