OM would stay in the game to recruit Ruslan Malinovskyi. The Olympian president would try to obtain the loan of the Ukrainian international from Atalanta.
If we are to believe the elements relayed by Provence, OM have not abandoned the trail leading to Ruslan Malinovskyi. Pablo Longoria would even make it one of his priorities to strengthen Igor Tudor’s group. The Marseille president is reportedly seeking a loan, although the player’s contract with Atalanta Bergamo is supposed to end next June.
The media specifies that the Marseille leaders were very active during the truce linked to the organization of the World Cup. Pablo Longoria would still have in mind to strengthen the workforce of OM, on the occasion of the winter transfer window. Ruslan Malinovskyi could digitally replace Gerson, for whom his father is looking for a way out.
Tottenham, West Ham and Notthingham Forest also on the spot?
In lack of playing time in Bergamo, Ruslan Malinovskyi should leave Atalanta, in January. However, the case is far from won for the Olympians. In recent months, the English press has linked the attacking midfielder with Tottenham, where his profile would particularly appeal to Antonio Conte. However, the London team has means that make it difficult for the Marseillais to compete. On the other hand, the player would have fewer guarantees to play at Spurs.
In Italy, Il Giorno claimed that West Ham and Nottingham Forest were also on the lookout on his file. In recent weeks, Italian media reported that his price was set at between 15 and 20 million euros.
After dropping Cédric Bakambu (Olympiakos), Arek Milik (Juventus) and Luis Suarez (Almeria), OM will be forced to strengthen their attacking sector in the coming weeks. We can also assume that Pablo Longoria will bet on a center forward capable of compensating for the possible injury of Alexis Sanchez. Aged 33, the Chilean has scored 7 goals in 17 appearances in the Marseille tunic since his arrival in France.
