The winter transfer window is well and truly launched at OM, which loaned Jordan Amavi to Nice and which is about to welcome Cédric Bakambu.
Free since his departure from China on December 31, Cédric Bakambu should be the first recruit in the winter transfer window of Olympique de Marseille. Indeed, the agreement is almost total between the Congolese international and the Marseille club for a two-and-a-half-year contract. Good news for Jorge Sampaoli, who wanted a reinforcement in attack in order to compete with Arkadiusz Milik. But OM’s winter transfer window could well not be reduced to the arrival of Cédric Bakambu. And for good reason, the site La Marseillaise announces that Daniel Wass, targeted by OM last summer before the return of Pol Lirola, is still in the books of Pablo Longoria. Six months from the end of his contract with Valencia, the Dutch international could well join La Canebière in January.
Wass, finally OM rather than Atlético?
🚨🚨💣 BRAKING: Daniel Wass’s transfer to Atlético de Madrid is VERY ADVANCED! 🔥

Specialist in original financial arrangements and disguised exchanges, Pablo Longoria could well use the interest of FC Valencia for Alvaro Gonzalez to negotiate a win-win deal with the club of Che. This would allow Marseille to get rid of a big salary and at the same time recover a player much appreciated by Jorge Sampaoli in the person of Daniel Wass, capable of occupying multiple positions, which greatly appeals to the coach of OM. In this case, the competition will nevertheless be tough because Atlético de Madrid also has an eye on the former right-back Evian TG. But the Colchoneros’ priority in this position seems to be Nordi Mukiele, the French international from RB Leipzig. A boon for Marseille, which could therefore go on the offensive to win the stake in the Daniel Wass file. With the Danish international in addition to Cédric Bakambu, Marseille’s winter transfer window would then start to look great.
