In addition to the presentation of Sead Kolasinac, Jorge Sampaoli spoke in the hot files of OM. He took the opportunity to confirm a track in defense.
OM Mercato: Sampaoli confirmed for Tagliafico
Coach of Olympique de Marseille, Jorge Sampaoli has clearly shown its needs for this winter transfer window. The Argentinian coach asked for 4 to 5 players to allow his team to win a qualifying place for the next Champions League and was of course heard by his management. OM leaders have managed to get their hands on two new reinforcements. Cédric Bakambu came to expand the Marseille attack, while Sead Kolasinac came to compensate for the departure of Jordan Amavi.
Despite everything, OM still have an appetite during this transfer window and their latest target is called Nicholas Tagliafico from Ajax Amsterdam. Asked at a press conference on Thursday, Jorge Sampaoli did not deny this information. The Marseille coach has even been publicly admitted to having exchanged with the Argentine defender with a view to a possible transfer. “It’s true that I spoke with him. He asked me to give him more time because he had other options., a recognized Jorge Sampaoli.
Nicolas Tagliafico moves away from Marseille
However, the Marseille coach threw a serious blow at the case Nicholas Tagliafico, supposed to hear that this track was no longer relevant with the arrival of Kolasinac. “Finally we brought in Kolasinac. We are happy to have him because he is a player who looks a lot like Tagliafico in profile. The only difference between them is that I had Tagliafico under my command added Sampaoli.
Ajax Amsterdam defender, Nicholas Tagliafico therefore moves away from Marseille. Napoli would even be in pole position in order to snatch his signature. Negotiations have already started between the two parties and an agreement cannot be ruled out.
