OM: Lazovic, a Tudor soldier rushes towards Marseille

In search of a left piston in the transfer window, OM are exploring a back-up plan in the event of failure in negotiations with Nuno Tavares. Darko Lazovic seems very close to Marseille.

After securing the services of Jonathan Clauss for the position of right piston, Olympique de Marseille is accelerating to recruit a left piston. For several weeks, the priority of Pablo Longoria and his right arm Javier Ribalta has been called Nuno Tavares, the 23-year-old Portuguese player at Arsenal. Understudy of Kieran Tierney at the Gunners, the former left-back of Benfica will see his situation further complicated in the coming hours with the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City. Pep Guardiola confirmed the Ukrainian’s departure to Arsenal on Wednesday, good news for OM in the Nuno Tavares case. However, the Marseille club continues to explore an emergency avenue in case negotiations fail with Arsenal for Nuno Tavares. This plan B leads to a soldier of Igor Tudor in the person of Darko Lazovic.

Lazovic plan B of OM behind Nuno Tavares?

Used as left piston by Igor Tudor at Hellas Verona last season, the 31-year-old Serbian international (23 caps) is a track for Olympique de Marseille according to Tutto Mercato Web. Left striker by training, Darko Lazovic had been successfully converted by Igor Tudor to the position of left piston last season, which makes plausible the existence of this track for the leaders of Olympique de Marseille. The fact remains that after having recruited a thirty-year-old on the right (Clauss), OM would like to recruit a younger player, potentially resalable on the left. This is the profile of Nuno Tavares, considered in Portugal as one of the great hopes for his position. The Arsenal player is therefore always the priority. But for Fabrizio Romano, the arrival of Lazovic well underway, even to the point that the Italian journalist specializing in the transfer window affirms that the Verona player has given his agreement and that final negotiations are underway.
