Is OM really thinking about this ex-Lyon in midfield?

Olympique de Marseille are still keen to sign midfielder Tanguy Ndombélé, according to Sky Sports.

After several weeks where Jordan Veretout’s name has been floating around Olympique de Marseille, Pablo Longoria would make serious progress on this track according to Foot Mercato. However, the French of AS Roma would not be the only one to be in the small roles of the president of Marseille.

OM and Galatasaray want the 25-year-old midfielder back. Foot Mercato adds that the Marseilles are thinking about the former Lyon player but, for the time being, they have not had contact with the English club or the player’s entourage. Other clubs would be interested such as Naples, AC Milan, Villarreal or Bayer Leverkusen.

During the transfer period, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach — Longoria

“It is normal that there are changes in the search for profiles. A player who is comfortable in one style of play is not necessarily comfortable in another. Last year we started with profiles to have possession in midfield and we mainly had Boubacar Kamara who had that central midfielder role. With Igor’s way of playing, the two midfielders will have different characteristics with more intensity, ability to occupy space. Therefore, the strategy will change in certain positions. As we said in the last press conference, the aim is to increase the quality of the squad, while giving continuity to the team. With the Champions League, I think we need to recruit 5 to 8 players (OM already has 7 with Nuno Tavares). During the signing period, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach. I have always said that good leaders are those who have a good ability to adapt, to the club, to the city and to the identity. And also an adaptation to a new coach and his style of play. You always have to meet the expectations of a new coach since he is the one who will develop the players. » Pablo Longoria Press conference (07/05/2022).
