OM Mercato : A new defender expected in Marseille
Olympique Marseille has been very active on the transfer market in recent hours. In less than 24 hours, the club has recorded two departures. Pol Lirola has left OM on loan for Elche. Konrad de la Fuente is on loan this season to the Greek Olympiakos. In addition to these two departures, a new signing was announced in Marseille this Saturday. Following the departure of Lirola, the arrival of Issa Kabore was in the pipeline. The 21-year-old right back is still under contract with Manchester City. According to several sources, including Team, the Burkinabe is expected to be loaned out without a compulsory purchase option for around ten million euros. La Provence understands that the deal will be finalized in the next few hours.
The Issa Kabor file closed on Monday?
The regional newspaper notes that this case has been delayed in recent hours. According to the source, some administrative details remain to be settled before the loan of Issa Kabore to Marseille is made official. The source understands that the deal will only be made official on Monday. The future Marseille fullback should be at the disposal of Igor Tudor from next week. Kabore has been rumored to be at OM and is about to experience a new Ligue 1 season. Last season he was on loan at the promoted Troyen.
During his spell at ESTAC, the Burkina Faso international (27 caps/2 goals) played 32 games and provided two assists. Enough to catch the eye of Marseille scouts looking for a new right-back this summer. With Kabore expected, other departures are expected to take place at Olympique Marseille before the end of the season. The objective for Pablo Longoria is to replenish the coffers while reducing the size of Igor Tudor’s squad.
