Zapping Foot National TOP 10: The most beautiful Ligue 1 2021/2022 jerseys
While Igor Tudor was appointed coach of Olympique de Marseille on Monday, the Marseille club’s transfer window continues and Pablo Longoria will now try to strengthen the team as well as possible for the coming season, including the League of Champions on the program. To do this, two players would currently be targeted, including Sofiane Diop, a young 22-year-old attacking element from AS Monaco. While Longoria announced that OM should register between 5 and 8 recruits during this summer transfer window, Diop could be one of them. But according to information from foot market, the Rocher club would not want a loan for their player, while OM would obviously keep a loan with a compulsory purchase option. Not wanting to strengthen a competitor in such a way, Monaco would wait for a dry definitive transfer, which could complicate the task of the Marseille club. It will therefore be a file to follow.
Former Tudor protege targeted
Another interesting file on the side of the Canebière with a former protege of Tudor who would also be on the shelves of OM. Thus, DAZN Italy indicates that Marseille would push hard to recruit Antonin Barak, the 27-year-old Czech international midfielder and well known to Igor Tudor, former coach of the Italian club until the end of the last season. Bought 6 million euros from Udinese, Barak is very popular with OM, who could thus accelerate on the file. The attacking midfielder had a big season in 2021-2022 with 11 goals and 4 assists in 29 Serie A games. Under contract until 2024, Barak could be tempted to join Tudor in the Marseille city but Naples would also be on the blow and it will have to be watched closely.
Olympique de Marseille are said to be targeting two elements in order to strengthen the team, with a player from Monaco and a former protege of Igor Tudor. The transfer window of the Phocaeans should in any case accelerate very soon.
