In search of offensive reinforcements this summer, Olympique de Marseille is multiplying the tracks. Three new targets have been mentioned in recent hours.
Qualified for the next Champions League, Olympique de Marseille wants to build a team capable of performing well on the European stage and playing the leading roles in the league. With this in mind, Marseille president Pablo Longoria is working to strengthen the attack of his coach Jorge Sampaoli.
Last season showed that OM often lacked solutions on the left wing, where neither Luis Henrique nor Konrad de la Fuente were convincing. For the next exercise, the Olympians would therefore like to find a high performer in this position. As usual since his arrival in Marseille, Longoria multiplies the leads and probes many players to place his pawns on several files. And in the last few hours, three names have come out in the media.
OM talks with Alexis Sanchez
Monday evening, we learned that OM thought Alexis Sanchez (33), whose name had already circulated on the Old Port last summer. In discussion with Inter Milan for the termination of his contract, the Chilean is an interesting option who could bring his experience to the Marseille group. But if we are to believe a close friend of Nerazzurro, who confided in La Tercera, the phocen club would not have his favors.
Marseille is one of the options the player has on the table, but others attract him more, such as FC Barcelona, revealed this source. After June 30, he will make a decision for his future. In addition to Bara and OM, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal and Aston Villa are also cited among the contenders for the native of Tocopilla, who is coming off a season with 9 goals and 5 assists in 39 games.
Tracks Bryan Gil and Benson
Less experienced, Bryan Gil (21) is another track studied by the Phocens. According to information from L’Equipe du Soir, Longoria appreciates the profile of the Spanish international and inquired about his situation with Tottenham, who loaned him to FC Valence last January. In difficulty since his arrival at Spurs, where his contract runs until June 2026, the native of Barbate has an uncertain future in London. OM are considering a loan to relaunch a player who had shown great potential at FC Sville before joining England for 25 million euros, plus Erik Lamela.
Finally, a third, lesser-known name is also associated with Marseille. According to the Belgian media La Dernire Heure, the Olympian decision makers have taken information on the player from Royal Antwerp, Manuel Benson (25 years old). Author of 6 goals and 8 decisive assists in 42 games, the former Mouscron is coming off a great season on a personal level with the club located in Antwerp, where his percussion skills have rendered many services. One year from the end of his contract, the Belgian club should not be too greedy to let go of an element also followed by Lyon and Schalke 04. Will one of these tracks make the happiness of the 2nd of the last season of L1? Business to follow…
