the trail of a seriously chilled rookie?

After the arrival of 3 players this week, OM continue their momentum. Igor Tudor and Marseille leaders have checked Darko Lazovic’s profile for the left piston position. If an agreement seems to have been reached, the file gets stuck because of a detail.

The Olympique de Marseille week was rich in emotion! The Phocaeans have signed French international Jonathan Clauss from Racing Club de Lens, the Colombian striker Luis Suarez and the spanish doorman Ruben Blanco. To continue in its momentum, the club has decided to look more deeply into this left-back position. If the file Nuno Tavares seems to be at a standstill, Pablo Longoria would have found a plan B which is none other thanan old Tudor soldier in Hellas Verona : Serbian Darko Lazovic. Under contract until 2024, the 31 year old left piston would have already obtained an agreement with the Phocaeans according to information from the newspaper The Team. However, during discussions with the leaders of Verona, the Marseillais tried to include Kevin Strootman in the deal that is no longer welcome in the South. For the moment, this proposal is blocking the progress of the dossier.

A somewhat complicated transaction!

The Dutch midfielder that OM want at all costs to see leave does not have a high Serie A rating since his two consecutive loans to Genoa and to Cagliari. The Phocaeans are in a complex situation since his XXL salary (500,000/month) can complicate negotiations with other teams. The two clubs have not yet agreed but it will soon be seen Strootman land again in Italy and Lazkovic landing in Marseille. The Serbian will be eagerly awaited in a position where Jordan Amavi and Sead Kolasinac did not convince the new OM coach. Case to follow.
