OM corrected, Longoria flashed on a side

Despite the signing of former Lensois Jonathan Clauss, Olympique de Marseille is still looking for a right side. The Marseille club would be interested in the Englishman Max Aarons, who participated in Norwich City’s recent victory against the Marseillais (3-0) in a friendly.

On its way, Olympique de Marseille is far from having completed its recruitment. In addition to the positions targeted before the opening of the transfer market, the management must also compensate for possible departures. We can notably mention the name of Pol Lirola. At first glance, the right-back will start next season as a back-up for rookie Jonathan Clauss, unless he leaves before the transfer window closes.

Lirola on the way out?

The hypothesis is not to be excluded as the Spaniard disappointed during the previous exercise. The former Fiorentina player was unrecognizable following his permanent transfer for 12 million euros. Suddenly, Olympique de Marseille will probably listen in case of approach for his flop. Which perhaps explains the club’s interest in a new right-back. Indeed, the Football Insider site claims that the vice-champion of France is interested in Max Aarons (22 years old). Has the Norwich City player recently caught the eye of Marseille leaders?

It is possible since the English international hopeful played the friendly match largely won against the men of Igor Tudor (3-0) last weekend. Note that Wolfsburg and Borussia Mönchengladbach would also be on the spot. Not enough to reduce the value of the player estimated at more than 20 million euros. At this price, not sure that President Pablo Longoria is ready to consider a transfer. Unless a loan, the leader should not go further. It could also be that Olympique de Marseille took information when the track Jonathan Clauss had cooled.
