Pablo Longoria, OM Olympique de Marseille

Very spendthrift between summer 2022 and winter 2023 (115M euros), Olympique de Marseille has managed to strengthen itself in several positions, with promising or experienced players. This is the case of the Ukrainian Ruslan Malinovskyi (29 years old), defector from Atalanta via a loan with OA of 18M euros, as well as the very promising Vitinha (22 years old), stolen from Braga for a record amount. (32M euros), and Azzedine Ounahi (22), author of a beautiful World Cup with Morocco, and bought for a pittance (8M + 2 bonus).

On the middle track, Ajax Amsterdam bitterly regrets not having been able to attract the former Angevin. Wesley Sneijder, passed by Nice, Real Madrid, Inter and Ajax, testified in this sense, in Veronica Offside : “I was told that he (Azzedine Ounahi) wanted to go to Ajax and I was asked if there was anything I could do. He was really very enthusiastic. What should it have cost? At the time, I believe it was 15 million euros. (…) He is a fantastic midfielder, he had a good World Cup. If he can continue his progression, he will be worth 70M euros in two years.”

For his first appearance with OM (16 minutes against Nantes), the Moroccan was a scorer. Which promises for the future and the market value of the 22-year-old midfielder.

A Lille track for OM?

According to the revelations of RMC, the Marseille club is on the lookout on the transfer market, especially on a profile at the end of the contract. Linked to LOSC until June 2023, Jonathan Bamba could migrate from the North to the South of France, as OM hopes, but also OGC Nice.

The two neighboring clubs, who face each other on Sunday evening in L1, want the 26-year-old French striker, in decent form with Lille this season (4 goals and 3 assists in 17 games), to leave his club since 2018 for free. , while Jonathan Bamba, tempted by La Liga, can already negotiate with the formations interested in his arrival.

Valued at 25M Euros per Transfermarktthe international market is a great market opportunity to be seized.
