While Jordan Amavi has been loaned to OGC Nice, a new left-back could come to OM this winter. But we still have to find the happy chosen one.
This winter, Pablo Longoria has to downsize the workforce of Jorge Sampaoli . Departures are expected at OM and this has already started with the loan of Jordan Amavi . The left-back has in fact been loaned with an option to buy to OGC Nice . It must be said that the Frenchman no longer smelled of holiness at OM . Not in 's plansSampaoli , Amavi, who had yet extended a few months ago, was thus pushed towards the exit. So he took the door to join the Aiglons.
Which successor for Jordan Amavi?
OM hoped so, Jordan Amavi has packed his bags. A departure which however leaves a void within the squad of Jorge Sampaoli . Thus, during this month of January, a left side could land on the Canebière. But this quest is far from obvious. Indeed, as La Provence explained on Monday, Sampaoli would hesitate regarding the profile of Amavi 's successor. In this regard, the coach of the OM explained: “We are looking for a player with a central profile, able to play on the left side of the defense. We would also like a more attacking full-back like Lirola on the right side to change the team structure from time to time. ”
