A defense case already settled for Longoria

OM Mercato: Olympique de Marseille should already give up on their last track. The Marseille club was targeting an Italian defender.

OM Mercato: End in sight for an international defender

Particularly active during the summer transfer window, Olympique de Marseille is still far from having completed its recruitment. Igor Tudor pushes for the arrival of new recruits at OM. The Marseille club has already registered 10 signings this summer. An eleventh would be approaching. In trouble on the side of Manchester United, Eric Bailly would be close to joining Marseille this summer. The Ivorian defender should be on loan from the Reds Devils. An amount estimated at 10 million euros is advanced as the purchase option attached to this loan. While the 28-year-old defender’s agreement is expected, Pablo Longoria would have targeted a plan B in the event of failure for Bailly. An interest in Francesco Acerbi has been revealed in recent hours. But the transalpine defender should not join the Canebière.

Francesco Acerbi close to a Serie A cador

According Sky Sport Italia, the Italian central defender has left to stay in Serie A. The 34-year-old defender is about to join a cador in the Italian championship. The source reveals Inter Milan’s interest in Francesco Acerbi. The Nerazzurri have reportedly ticked off the Lazio Roma player’s name to make up for Andrea Ranocchia’s departure. This other defender left the Lombard club freely this summer. Sky understands that Inter would like to enlist Acerbi on a loan with an option to buy. No amount has leaked regarding this release clause.

Dropped in this case, Pablo Longoria should devote himself to the arrival of Eric Bailly. If signed, the Ivorian international will be the fourth defender recruited by OM this summer. Isaak Touré, Samuel Gigot and Chancel Mbemba, scorer against FC Nantes this Saturday, have joined the ranks of Olympique de Marseille.
