OM: Strootman exchanged, genius Longoria strikes again

OM will soon welcome a new recruit in the person of Darko Lazović (Hellas Verona). An operation in which will appear Kevin Strootman.

After a few days of calm, OM are in second place on the transfer market. The Marseille management recruited three players in a few hours: Jonathan Clauss (Lens), Luis Suarez (Granada) and Roggerio Nyakossi (Servette). These players will soon be followed by Darko Lazović. The midfielder plays for Hellas Verona, the former club of OM’s new coach, Igor Tudor. The Croatian even made it a priority to strengthen his squad. To facilitate the arrival of Lazović on the Canebière, Pablo Longoria used his talents of persuasion but also took the opportunity to include in the deal one of his undesirables.

OM and Strootman, is it finally over?

In any case, this is what Gianluca Di Marzio has taught us in recent hours. The Italian journalist indicates that Kevin Strootman will be part of the deal concerning Darko Lazović. Good news for OM’s finances, the Dutchman still being the club’s biggest salary with his 6 million euros per season. The arrival of Lazović, a 31-year-old Serbian international, is considered a nice move in view of Marseille’s future participation in the Champions League. The announced departure of Kevin Strootman will also free up OM’s finances for future operations this summer. The Marseille management is preparing to welcome a new goalkeeper but also attacking elements. What about the Amine Harit file, who wants to leave Schalke 04 after a promising season at OM. Pablo Longoria could pass the second very soon. The Spanish president of OM could also prepare some surprises, while this Olympian transfer window is decidedly surprising. On the first day of Ligue 1 on August 7, OM will host the Stade de Reims at the Stade Vélodrome. This still leaves the Marseille club some time to adjust its workforce.
