OM Mercato: With the departure of Boubacar Kamara and the disappointment of Lirola, Pablo Longoria is interested in two RC Lens executives.
OM Mercato: End clap for Kamara in Marseille
Saturday, Boubacar Kamara played his last match with Olympique de Marseille. A final success for the minot and OM who crushed RC Strasbourg. A success (4-0) combined with Monaco’s draw at Lens (2-2) allowed the Marseille club to secure its qualification for the Champions League next season. A campaign in which Boubacar Kamara will therefore not take part. Courted by the big cars of Europe, the midfielder should rather commit to Aston Villa this summer.
Returned to Marseille last summer after a satisfied loan, Pol Lirola was below the level expected this season. The Spanish side was even relegated to this position by Valentin Ronnier, converted into a right-back by Jorge Sampaoli. Not satisfied with the side, Pablo Longoria could recruit for this position this summer.
Fofana and Clauss, the Blood and Gold in Longoria’s sights
According to information from RMC Sports, the president of Olympique de Marseille would be eyeing RC Lens to strengthen these positions. Pablo Longoria would bet on the signing of Seko Fofana to compensate for the departure of Boubacar Kamara. The Ivorian midfielder has not missed any Sang et Or match this season for 10 goals and 2 assists. Still under contract until 2024, his market value is estimated at 20 million euros on Transfermarkt. The Ivorian international is an old target of OM. He was already close to joining the Provençal club last summer.
One of Pablo Longoria’s priorities has been signing a new right-back. The Olympian leader would have ticked the name of Jonathan Clauss. The 29-year-old side is also coming out of a full season with RC Lens. He only missed one Racing game due to suspension. Indisputable holder in Franck Haise’s eleven, Clauss took part in 40 games for 5 goals and 11 assists. His performances have also opened the doors to the France team.
OGC Nice would not be as insensitive to the prowess of the tricolor neo-international as revealed Sports Daily. One year from the expiration of his contract, he had also been evasive about his future. “At the moment, it’s pretty vague. Today, I have a contract, I am Lensois and, for the moment, I will remain Lensois next season”, he indicated recently at the microphone of RMC Sports.
