Pablo Longoria obviously has good relations with Arsenal leaders, since the president of Marseille wants to bring in a defender from the Gunners.
The London-Marseille axis is working well, especially in the direction England-France, since OM has recovered William Saliba and Mattéo Guendouzi in the form of a loan from the English club. And this could continue if we are to believe Mathieu Grégoire. The journalist from L’Equipe explained this Sunday that the leaders of Marseille have recently established direct contact with relatives of Sead Kolasinac, the Bosnian international defender who plays in the Arsenal jersey. Loaned during the 2021 winter transfer window to Schalke 04, a club he had left in 2017 to join the Gunners, the 28-year-old left side had been placarded by Mikel Arteta since the start of the season before finally joining the infirmary of the ‘Emirates Stadium due to an ankle injury with his selection which has kept him away from the field since the end of November. Sead Kolasinac’s playing time in the Premier League is starved this season with only 90 minutes played in two games.
OM have delicate details to settle to sign Kolasinac
What obviously to boost the hopes of Olympique de Marseille to reach an agreement with Arsenal on the international defender who will be free next June. However, Mathieu Grégoire specifies, without revealing them, that “cSome details seem tricky to sort out “. These details are probably linked to the salary of Sead Kolasinac who earns 120,000 euros per week at Arsenal, an amount of which OM could support part but not all. In the dossier of the Bosnian defender, the name of Fenerbahçe was also mentioned, even if the Istanbul club does not have colossal financial means either. It’s up to Pablo Longoria to play, and in this area the president of Marseille is rather very strong.
