In order to build a competitive team for the next Champions League, Jorge Sampaoli called for experienced reinforcements used to playing Europe during this Mercato OM. A message visibly well received by Frank McCourt and the management of Olympique de Marseille.
If Pablo Longoria and the Marseille leaders had already been recruited from the heavyweight for OM in the transfer window last summer (Mattéo Guendouzi, Gerson, William Saliba, Cengiz Ünder …), the Marseille club trained by Jorge Sampaoli would have already been formed on the two Belgian internationals Axel Witsel and Dries Mertens, who will both arrive at the end of their contract respectively at Borussia Dortmund and SSC Naples, but another file is currently being studied by Olympique de Marseille on this market for transfers.
Indeed, according to information from the Corriere dello Sport, OM would like to obtain a loan from Joaquin Correa (27), who has scored 6 goals in 26 Serie A games with Inter Milan this season. A player much appreciated by Jorge Sampaoli, who already had him under his orders both at Sevilla FC and when he was the coach of the Argentina national team.
A very big blow attempted by Olympique de Marseille by Dimitri Payet on this summer transfer window with Joaquin Correa (Inter Milan)! Business to follow in the coming days between OM and the Argentinian international (17 caps / 3 goals), capable of evolving as a left winger but also and above all as a second striker or as a point.
