After securing a dozen recruits in the summer, Jorge Sampaoli was awaiting further reinforcements for this winter transfer window. And the OM coach is set to see his wish come true soon.

The winter transfer window promises to be eventful at OM . This has already started to change with the departure of Jordan Amavi , on loan with option to buy from OGC Nice . A start that should not be the last, especially as Pablo Longoria would have been forced by Frank McCourt for sale for 30M € during this month of January. At the same time, several recruits are expected on the Canebière. Indeed, Jorge Sampaoli hopes for new blood to have the best chances to shine during this second part of the season. On several occasions, the Argentinian challenged his leadership about his needs and a few days ago, Sampaoli added a layer of it, dropping: “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 ”.

Bakambu and Kolasinac to strengthen OM?

So these are 3 or 4 new players that Jorge Sampaoli would like to welcome to OM during this month of January. The first could already be known in the person of Cédric Bakambu, he who is currently free from any contract. Recently, the Congolese explained that he was open to a return to Ligue 1 and that is what he should do by joining OM . On Tuesday, L’Equipe confirmed the trend ensuring that Bakambu was closer than ever to signing up with the Marseille club. There would now only be a few details to work out before signing a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Despite Arkadiusz Milik , OM would thus be preparing to welcome a new striker with Cédric Bakambu . Subsequently, a left-back could land on La Canebière. After pushing Jordan Amavi towards the exit, Jorge Sampaoli now wants to replace him and Pablo Longoria would work for that. The president of the OM could indeed reach the goal in this quest. According to the latest information from England, the Phocaeans are currently holding the rope for Sead Kolasinac , who could leave Arsenal in the days to come, he who is in his last year of contract with the Gunners.
