After the Brazilian Gerson, Olympique de Marseille wants to recruit another midfielder. OM could once again turn to another unwanted player at Arsenal.
OM on the trail of an unwanted Gunners player
With one year to go before his contract expires, Boubacar Kamara should, barring any surprises, leave Olympique Marseille. The young midfielder is on the table of AC Milan. The Lombardy club has already made an offer for the 21-year-old. To compensate for the transfer of Kamara, the management of OM has already signed a first reinforcement in the person of Gerson. The Brazilian midfielder will arrive in the next few days from Flamengo. In addition to this signature, Pablo Longoria wants to sign another midfielder in the person of Mattheo Guendouzi. Like Kamara, he has only one year left on his contract at Arsenal. Not in the plans of Mikel Arteta, the international Espoirs tricolore will be sold this summer.
A deal around 10 M€ with the Gunners?
The midfielder trained at Paris Saint-Germain was on loan at Hertha Berlin last season. During his time there, he played 24 games in the Bundesliga, scoring 2 goals and providing 3 assists. On the move to London, Mattheo Guendouzi would be willing to join Olympique Marseille. An agreement for a five-year contract is evoked. The only thing left for the Olympique leaders to do is to find an agreement with Arsenal. For Fabrizio Romano, negotiations between the two parties are well underway. The portal TodoFichajes indicates that the operation should cost 10 million euros to Marseille. The Phocaean club is therefore on the way to recruiting two undesirable Mikel Arteta this summer. In addition to Guendouzi, Pablo Longoria wants to sign William Saliba. The central defender was on loan at OGC Nice during the second half of the season.
