With one year left on his contract, Adam Ounas could leave Napoli during this summer mercato. OM wants to take advantage of this to try to attract him. The Italian club has set its requirements for the 24-year-old striker.
OM is looking for a competitor for Dimitri Payet
After eight new recruits, Gerson, Konrad de la Fuente, Cengiz Under, Luan Peres, Matteo Guendouzi, William Saliba, Pau Lopez and the definitive transfer of Leonardo Balerdi, Olympique de Marseille wants more. According to the information disclosed by Corriere dello Sport, Pablo Longoria and his team continue to work on the transfer market in search of the slightest opportunity capable of adding value to the team of Jorge Sampaoli. In particular a competitor to Dimitri Payet.
The Italian daily assures that the leaders of Olympique de Marseille have set their sights on Adam Ounas. After several consecutive loans in recent seasons (Nice, Cagliari and Crotone), the 24-year-old striker still does not seem to be part of the plans of the new coach of SSC Napoli Luciano Spalletti. Under contract until June 2022, the Algerian international could therefore benefit from a release during this summer mercato.
This is a good thing because Jorge Sampaoli would like to allow him to really get back on track at Olympique the Marseille. The Marseille leaders should even take action in this case in the coming days. But the Italian club does not intend to sell its twirling Algerian winger.
