Desiring to strengthen their attacking sector for next season, OM is in a battle with Arsenal for an Algerian star.
The end of the season is not easy for Marseille. While OM supporters have long hoped for a trophy this season, the club’s recent results suggest that they will have to wait. Despite the terrible defeat against Annecy in the French Cup on March 1st, Marseille was still in the running to try to win the Ligue 1 title.
But after two consecutive draws against Montpellier (1-1) and Lorient (0-0) since the end of the break, OM is in third place with an 8-point deficit behind PSG, the league leader, which seems to greatly compromise a possible title at the end of the season. The main objective now concerns qualifying for the Champions League, and if possible, without going through the playoffs.
To achieve this, Igor Tudor‘s men will have to find their way back to success, Sunday against Troyes, while hoping for a misstep from RC Lens at Parc des Princes on Saturday night to recover the second place that Marseille is two points behind. At the same time, Pablo Longoria is already working on the next summer transfer window, which will open on June 10th. The Marseille president wants to strengthen the OM attacking sector and is reportedly in a battle with Arsenal for an Algerian star player.
