The president of OM, Pablo Longoria would have studied a new track in midfield. It would lead straight to a nugget of Manchester United.
Olympique Marseille continues its season with the firm ambition to qualify for the next Champions League. The Phocéens let this competition slip away much too early in 2022, finishing the group phase in last place despite some remarkable performances. The two victories against Sporting CP did not allow them to reach the last 16. A stage they have not reached for 10 years.
The winter market should perhaps help Igor Tudor’s men to take a step forward. Already author of a mercato rich in reinforcements this summer, with the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, Eric Bailly or Samuel Gigot, OM is able to continue this momentum. Pablo Longoria, the club’s president, has already shown interest in Angers SCO‘s Moroccan sensation Azzedine Ounahi, but also in Ruslan Malinovskyi. The Ukrainian attacking midfielder, who plays for Atalanta, is being considered to join the Phocaean city according to BFM Marseille and Le Phoceen.
Hannibal Mejbri on the tablets of the OM
The profile of Azzedine Ounahi may have given ideas to Olympique Marseille. Another European sensation, Hannibal Mejbri, is making much less noise but is becoming more and more noticed. On loan this season from Manchester United to Birmingham City (EFL Championship), the young central midfielder has already won 20 caps for Tunisia. And this, at only 19 years. It should also be noted that Mejbri could also play for France, he has dual nationality.
Estimated at 6 million euros according to Transfermarkt, Mejbri could be a good deal for OM who is courting him according to The Sun. The only problem is that the club from Marseille would be more interested in recruiting Azzedine Ounahi. The British source adds that Pablo Longoria has sent a scout to analyze the latest performances of the player. It should be noted that the site Foot Marseille remains perplexed and denies an interest of OM for Hannibal Mejbri. More information to come in the coming days.
