Among the information and rumors of the transfer window of the day, Marseille is targeting an Argentinian attacking midfielder, Lyon is also approaching an Argentinian, Manchester United and Liverpool are fighting over a French defender, M’Baye Niang could leave Rennes, Martin Odegaard has chosen his future club , Fenerbahçe formalizes Özil …
According to the Argentinian mediaVélez A Fondo and Telefoot, OM would have contacted Velez Sarsfield for their young attacking midfielder, Thiago Almada. The 19-year-old, who has scored 13 goals and offered 4 assists in 55 games, is estimated to be worth 10 million euros. A sum deemed too high by Pablo Longoria who would still like to recruit him this winter.
According to The team, Frank McCourt would have granted an envelope of 10 million euros to Marseille leaders to find a replacement for Morgan Sanson with a slightly more offensive profile.
Moreover, according to Sport1, Marseille, like Monaco, are said to be among the courtiers of German Borussia Dortmund international Mahmoud Dahoud, who is looking to save playing time.
Florian Thauvin will certainly have to make a quick choice between an extension or a free start this summer or even in January. According to The team, the French would have refused a proposal from OM and would have made known his demands. The world champion would claim no less than 4 million euros per year in salary when Marseille only offered him 2.5 million.
A departure seems more and more likely and AC Milan would hold the rope in the player’s mind.
While Bayern Munich appear to be the club furthest ahead on this record, both Manchester United and Liverpool are said to be on the prowl to reclaim Dayot Upamecano this summer. According to The Daily Mirror, the French defender has long been a target of Jurgen Klopp but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like to take the opportunity and overtake all the competition. As a reminder, Upamecano would have a release clause of 42 million euros at RB Leipzig.
Edin Dzeko is reportedly currently being sidelined by his trainer since the mutiny that allegedly took place in the Roman dressing room recently. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Louve club could take the opportunity to send him to Inter Milan by obtaining in exchange the undesirable Danish, Christian Eriksen.
According to Corriere dello Sport, OL and River Plate are said to be very close to an agreement for the transfer of Argentine right-back Gonzalo Montiel. The player, also in the sights of Roma, could extend his contract at River which ends in six months before heading to Lyon.
Despite a return to the group or even the eleven in recent weeks, M’Baye Niang is once again dismissed by Rennes and on the start list. Courted by ASSE in October, the Senegalese international would be in the sights of Saudi club AL Shabab, according to Footmercato. A loan would have been requested from Stade Rennais while the player would not be against an exotic challenge.
Still looking for a striker to replace Sébastien Haller, West Ham would have been rejected by Sevilla FC for Youssef En-Nesyri. The Hammers could then turn to Celtic Glasgow’s French striker Odsonne Edouard, according to the Daily Star. The former Parisian, however, would be more attracted to a Premier League cador.
After having hesitated for a long time, Manchester United would have finally made the choice to lend Jesse Lingard until the end of the season. Solicited by OM and Nice, it is in the Premier League that the English international should continue, according to ESPN. Newcastle, Tottenham, Sheffield, West Brom or West Ham would be in the running.
Several days after the player’s announcement on social networks, the arrival of Mesut Özil in Fenerbahçe this time was formalized by the Turkish club and Arsenal. The Germany international terminated his contract with the Gunners and signed free at the Istanbul club for three and a half years.
After the new defeat of OM this Saturday evening, several Spanish media, including Movistar, AS and Mundo Deportivo, announced a possible dismissal of André Villas Boas in the coming hours. Pablo Longoria are said to have plans to quickly replace the Portuguese with former Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde but rather for next season.
However according to Marca, it will be very difficult if not impossible to convince the Spaniard who, despite a year without coaching, is looking for a more ambitious club and who is aiming for the title in his national championship. Which is far from being the case with OM at the moment.
