Free from any contract since leaving China, Cédric Bakambu should indeed engage with OM where he will sign a two-and-a-half-year contract.
Discreet during this winter transfer window, the OM should finally take action. After giving up Jordan Amavi , on loan to OGC Nice , the Marseille club are looking for defensive reinforcements, but also scrutinize the market for an opportunity in the offensive sector. With this in mind, the name of Cédric Bakambu comes back with insistence in recent days. He had also recently opened the door to a return to Ligue 1. “If today I have to come back to Ligue 1, why not, we'll see. In any case, I am not focused or closed on a single championship, whether it is abroad or in Ligue 1 or La Liga. Me, as I said previously, it will be more to the feeling, I will play it like that ”, he confided to Foot Mercato.
Bakambu arrives at OM
And the arrival of Cédric Bakambu at OM is confirmed. According to information from L'Equipe, the two parties are almost in agreement on the basis of a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Only a few details are missing before the medical examination for Cédric Bakambu to be officially a OM player.
