OM: Bakambu out, Fenerbahçe makes Marseille smile

Arriving at OM last January, Cédric Bakambu could already say goodbye to La Canebière. The Marseille club is disappointed with his performance and will not retain him in the event of a suitable offer. This one may come from Turkey.

He went from very good business to pariah of OM. Cédric Bakambu did not really convince in the Marseille jersey during his first six months with the Phocaeans. Arrived free last January after the end of his contract at Beijing Guoan, he was to bring a different profile to the Marseille attack. Above all, the former Sochaux and Villarreal player had to string together the goals like pearls. Unfortunately, the account is not there with four small goals in 22 matches in all competitions. It’s very meager, especially when you have the biggest salary in the Marseille locker room.

Fenerbahçe put pressure on Bakambu

Thus, while OM must clean up its finances, Cédric Bakambu is not one of the untransferable players in the locker room. Pablo Longoria and his team are open to any good enough offer for the Congolese striker. Celta Vigo has already come to information without necessarily going on the attack. However, another club is much more enterprising in the file, it is Fenerbahçe.

Indeed, according to the Turkish media Fotomac, the Istanbul club has already made contact with representatives of Cédric Bakambu. Very interested in the profile of the Olympian striker, Fener is a credible candidate for a transfer this summer. Bakambu appeals in Turkey especially after his successful spell at Bursaspor in 2014-2015. He had then scored 21 goals in 40 matches, which allowed him to be transferred to Villarreal in stride. It remains to give a good amount to OM and to convince the player. One last detail far from being anecdotal as Bakambu has claimed to want to stay at OM in recent days.
