Olympique de Marseille are planning to recruit a new striker this winter. OM should nevertheless be wary of Rafael Benitez. The Everton coach is also interested in a target of Pablo Longoria.
Rafael Benitez’s bad turn against OM laid bare
Although quite active during the last transfer window, Olympique de Marseille failed to afford a new center forward. Pablo Longoria faced many rejections in the last transfer window. WhileArkadiusz Milik, just back to competition, is the only 9 confirmed from OM, Jorge Sampaoli wants a lining to the Pole. Reason why the Marseille club should still be active during the winter transfer window to strengthen its offensive sector. For several weeks, the name ofAlexis sanchez is mentioned as a potential recruit from Marseille. Like Milik in the first half of last season, the Chilean striker is in arrears at Inter Milan and has an exit voucher. Only in this case, the Provencal club will have to be wary of the competition of Rafael Benítez, Everton’s coach.
Alexis Sanchez in the little papers of Benitez
According to the latest indiscretions of Calcio Mercato, the Spanish technician wants to recruit the 32-year-old striker this winter. According to the Italian publication, the coach of the Toffees would even be willing to offer an exchange to Inter Milan for the transfer of Alexis Sanchez. Rafael Benitez would like to include the Turk Cenk Tosun in the deal. But the Nerrazzurri are reportedly not interested in this player and will see a nice transfer fee for the former Blaugrana. Which has only played 5 games (85 minutes) this season for an assist. In lack of playing time, the Chilean should therefore leave Lombardy before his contract expires in 2023. It remains to be seen whether OM will try their luck to revive Sanchez’s career at half mast since his signing at Manchester United .
