Mercato | Mercato – OM: Winter promises to be hot in Marseille!

Confined to a replacement role at OM, Luis Henrique could well look elsewhere as soon as the winter transfer window, like Jordan Amavi.

In the summer of 2020, in order to meet the demands of André Villas-Boas who was then the coach of OM before a sudden separation in February 2021, the Marseille leadership recruited an offensive element in the person of Luis Henrique . However, over the course of the previous year, the Portuguese technician admitted that it was a casting error. Indeed, Henrique is ultimately a much more comfortable player in a corridor than at the tip of the attack. Certainly, Villas-Boas would have liked to have recruited a versatile player, but one who had sufficient qualities to continuously evolve in the axis of attack. And with the appointment of Jorge Sampaoli , the sporting situation of Luis Henrique has not really improved. This season, Henrique has to be content with simple starters and has only started on three occasions, against Angers in September, Nice in October and Metz at the beginning of November, three draws (0-0, 1-1, 0-0). Not having a decisive role at OM, Luis Henrique may well have to look elsewhere.

Luis Henrique brought to look elsewhere this winter?

Passing through a press conference on Friday, Jorge Sampaoli lingered on the sporting situation of Jordan Amavi by saying the following. “Jordan or others have the right to look for a way out. The important thing is that the player progresses, if we do not succeed maybe another team will be able to help him ». And according to La Provence, the message from the OM coach would apply to Luis Henrique . The Olympique de Marseille forward would “have every interest in being on loan” according to the media if the 19-year-old Brazilian did not want to see a slowdown in his post-training in Europe. The stage is set, it remains to be seen whether Henrique will look elsewhere this winter.
