OM: Four recruits this winter, Longoria is hot

Despite the elimination of all European competitions, OM intend to be active and ambitious during the winter transfer window.

Pablo Longoria is not the type to sit idly by during the transfer window. Despite the elimination of Olympique de Marseille from the Champions League and from all European competitions for the second half of the season, the Marseille president has the firm intention of strengthening the squad available to Igor Tudor so as not to miss the double objective for the coming months: to reach the podium in Ligue 1 and win the Coupe de France. During the first part of the season, the workforce of OM reached some limits and Pablo Longoria wants to remedy this. This is how, according to information from Mohamed Toubache-Ter, the president of Olympique de Marseille wants to hit hard during the next winter transfer window insofar as the current fourth in Ligue 1 would like to recruit a midfielder, a number ten and a striker.

Four recruits at OM during the winter transfer window?

Three recruits and maybe even a fourth according to Karim Bennani, journalist for Prime Video. Ambitions which will not fail to ignite the supporters of Olympique de Marseille but which all the same raise the question: is it necessary to recruit so many to compete only in Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France when the workforce of the OM already seems well armed quantitatively, especially in the offensive sector with players such as Payet, Ünder, Alexis Sanchez, Bamba Dieng or Luis Suarez? With a recruitment of this magnitude, Pablo Longoria wants above all to compensate for the losses of Gerson, about to be sold to Flamengo and Amine Harit, seriously injured in the knee and who has a good chance of not playing again for the season. On the side of the supporters, we would also like reinforcements in defense, where the repeated absences of Eric Bailly frustrated everyone during the first part of the season. In the radius of departures, in addition to Gerson, the situations of Gueye and Luis Suarez will be scrutinized and the two players will not be retained in the event of an interesting offer.
