OM: Wahbi Khazri in Marseille, the improbable rumour!

Free of any contract at the end of the month, Wahbi Khazri will leave Saint-Etienne and arouses the greed of several Ligue 1 clubs including OM.

Author of ten league goals this season, Wahbi Khazri will not stay at ASSE, relegated to Ligue 2 after a nightmarish season. Despite the setbacks of his team, the Tunisian international managed to pull out of the game by scoring his ten goals in Ligue 1, as he has done for years. It is therefore natural that the former striker of the Girondins de Bordeaux, at the end of the contract on June 30, finds himself courted with a view to next season. According to information from the newspaper L’Equipe, three Ligue 1 clubs have expressed interest in recovering Wahbi Khazri for free next season. And not least since the national daily understands that the interested clubs are Nice, Lille… and Olympique de Marseille.

Khazri interests Nice, Lille and OM

A priori, Wahbi Khazri would not hold in any of these three clubs. But OGC Nice, Lille and OM are all looking for additional players at a lower cost. Wahbi Khazri ticks all the boxes. First, it is free and therefore will not cost any transfer fee. In addition, his salary is affordable for clubs of such size on a national scale. And above all, he is a player experienced in Ligue 1 games and who is likely to bring added value to any workforce in the French championship. The Marseille track is nevertheless the most surprising of all, Pablo Longoria and Jorge Sampaoli having an important recruitment network and not having taken the habit for a year of recruiting in Ligue 1. Anyway, Wahbi Khazri will be spoiled for choice for the rest of his career. If he wishes, the Tunisian can also choose to leave France to try a new adventure abroad. And for good reason, Khazri’s agents are in contact with Serie A clubs whose names have not yet been filtered.
