The DNCG having taken no action against OM, the transfer window of the Marseille club will finally be able to take off.
Pablo Longoria was impatiently awaiting the response from the DNCG, the financial policeman of French football, on Thursday around 7 p.m. It is with great relief that the OM staff learned that the DNCG, convinced by the documents and guarantees provided by Frank McCourt, was not taking any action against the club. The transfer window will now be able to start in Marseille, where Pablo Longoria and his new right-hand man Javier Ribalta are in discussions with several potential reinforcements. Loaned without a purchase option by Schalke 04 last season, Amine Harit is one of the players that Jorge Sampaoli wants to recruit permanently to OM. And the Moroccan could well be the first Marseille recruit, an agreement not being very far away at around 8 million euros between Marseille and the German club.
OM accelerates for Harit and Kluivert
In the offensive sector, discussions have also accelerated with AS Roma for the potential transfer of Justin Kluivert. Loaned to OGC Nice last season (6 goals, 6 assists), the Dutch winger has a profile extremely appreciated by Jorge Sampaoli according to La Provence. Indeed, the track of Justin Kluivert has been validated in person by the OM coach, who believes that the current Roma striker’s fiery legs would be invaluable to him in his style of play. Under contract with Roma until In June 2023, for another year, Justin Kluivert will not be retained by the Louve club. With qualification for the Champions League in hand, OM have a serious argument to convince the player and have already started discussions with his agent.
Bazoer, OM rather than Mönchengladbach?
Finally, the leaders of Olympique de Marseille have not abandoned the track of Riechedly Bazoer, at the end of his contract at the end of the month with Vitesse Arnhem. A time announced very close to Marseille, the 25-year-old Dutchman was then mentioned at Borussia Mönchengladbach. But according to the Marseille newspaper, the director of football Javier Ribalta has taken over the file and the trend is again towards a signing with OM. A nice shot if it is confirmed for this player capable of evoking in midfield and central defense, like a certain Boubacar Kamara, who left for Aston Villa a few weeks ago. With the decision rendered by the DNCG on Thursday evening, the OM transfer window has in any case experienced a real boost. This will reassure Jorge Sampaoli, who has been very tense in recent days due to the slowness of the Marseille transfer window.
