Present at a press conference this Thursday, Jorge Sampaoli did not hide his desire to see new players land this winter. With this in mind, the OM coach draws a robot portrait of the two profiles he wants to see arrive before January 31.
This winter, the priority of the Olympique de Marseille is to sell. And for good reason, after a bloated transfer window which saw the arrival of 11 players, the Marseille club did not sell enough to offset the expenses. With this in mind, Pablo Longoria hopes to find a taker for several items such as Boubacar Kamara , Alvaro Gonzalez or even Steve Mandanda . In the meantime, Jordan Amavi was the first to leave the OM since he joined OGC Nice in the form of a loan with option to buy. The native of Toulon no longer entered the plans of Jorge Sampaoli which does not prevent the Argentinian technician from calling for reinforcements to replace Jordan Amavi by the end transfer window.
After Amavi leaves, Sampaoli wants two recruits
Present at a press conference this Thursday, Jorge Sampaoli has indeed shown his willingness to see new reinforcements land this winter. Arrivals which could also be unlocked by the departure of Jordan Amavi : “We have already commented on it before. The club is in a complicated economic situation which complicates the arrival of players that would be necessary. Jordan's departure allows us the arrival of a new player. He didn't play much with us. The club is undergoing restructuring. And we must reduce a salary to recruit another player. We talked a lot about the winter transfer window and in June with Longoria and McCourt. We also depend on sales. In our opinion, we need three or four more players to have a full squad. “In the process, the coach of OM detailed the profile of the players he wishes to recruit. Ideally, Jorge Sampaoli expects two recruits. A first to breathe life into Luan Peres , and a second to occupy the left corridor and be the counterpart of Pol Lirola . “We are looking for a player with an axial profile capable of playing on the left side but also the profile of a more offensive side. We asked ourselves this question. We need these two profiles, we will look for the best possibility. It's a difficult transfer window. We need a few players to close a squad that is a bit tight. We are looking for a seasoned player who will also give the opportunity to Luan Peres because he has played a lot, ”added Sampaoli .
