OM will still intend to hit hard by the end of the transfer window. Pablo Longoria could launch an attack to secure the services of Ruslan Malinovsky, who was expelled by Atalanta. Other sources announce the possible arrival of Gaëtan Laborde (Rennes). Bamba Deng and Jordan Amafi play on the starting line.
According to the information you provided the teamOM is planning one last big move, this transfer window, with Ruslan Malinovsky. The newspaper asserts that Pablo Longoria had planned to move very quickly to recruit the Ukrainian international (49 caps, 7 goals), once some of the departures were validated. The attacking midfielder has only one year left on his contract with Atalanta, who is not considering his free departure next summer. Thus, Marseille club can benefit from it.
Ruslan Malinovsky has been playing for Bergamo FC since 2019. The Zhitomore native made 131 matches in his colors, in all competitions, scoring 30 goals and 27 assists. The player has a good reputation in the Italian league, where he is considered a great talent. Spurs were thinking of him too, before favoring the arrival of a defender (Christian Romero, also from Atalanta).
Longoria Ready to Move with LaBoard?
Journalist Sebastien Denis asserts that OM could launch an attack to secure the services of Gaëtan Laborde. The process would be complicated, because Nice would have taken the lead and no agreement would be reached between Marseille and the striker. Pablo Longoria must split from Bamba Deng and Cedric Bakambu to fund the €20m transfer.
To end the transfer window, Pablo Longoria is betting privately on the departure of Pampa Dieng. Discussions are reportedly underway with Lorient with a potential transfer of up to €8 million (plus a percentage on resale). Another deal that could make the process easier: Jordan Amafi could join Olympiacos on loan with an option to buy.
