Isaak Touré, the enormous forcing of OM in the transfer window

In search of a central defender to make up for the departure of William Saliba, OM are not letting go of Isaak Touré, the colossus of Le Havre.

Launched in search of the rare pearl in the position of central defender, Olympique de Marseille has made Isaak Touré its top priority on the transfer market. For several weeks, Pablo Longoria has been negotiating the arrival of the 19-year-old colossus from Le Havre. The president of OM has met Isaak Touré’s agents on several occasions and the 2m04 player was even invited to the Vélodrome to watch the match between OL and Marseille at the end of the season. However, the file has been tough for Pablo Longoria in recent weeks with interest from Manchester City, Frankfurt or Newcastle, while in Ligue 1, Lyon recruiters are also following the situation of Isaak Touré with attention. . That said, OM are indeed the hottest club to bring in the defender from Le Havre according to Foot Mercato.

The media reveals that the leaders of Olympique de Marseille are currently forcing to complete the arrival of Isaak Touré, real priority of Pablo Longoria but also of Jorge Sampaoli to fill the departure of William Saliba in central defense. New contacts have taken place over the past few hours between the president of OM and the representatives of Isaak Touré in order to advance a file which should be finalized between 6 and 8 million euros for the club which will manage to put the grapple on the Le Havre defender. Time is running out for Isaak Touré, who will play the Under-19 Euro with the French team from next Saturday and who wants to be fixed on his future before the start of the competition. It is therefore this week that Olympique de Marseille will have to succeed in closing the file at the risk of being grilled by the competition. Which would not fail to frustrate the staff of OM, who have already seen one of the priorities of their transfer window slip under their noses in the person of Mohamed Ali Cho, who is heading to Real Sociedad.
