OM would not let go of Deulofeu!

OM could return to the charge to recruit Gerard Deulofeu, during the next transfer window. The Spaniard is still playing at Udinese, which he did not leave during the summer despite all the rumours.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, OM are on the lookout to recruit Gerard Deulofeu in the coming months. The Spanish international (4 caps, 1 goal) stayed at Udinese last summer, despite interest from several clubs, of which Napoli. The formation of Udine, however, proved to be greedy and the SSCN opted for other solutions.

Gerard Deulofeu nevertheless made a good start to the season. The native of Riudarenes has scored 3 goals and delivered 7 assists in 15 games in all competitions. Already targeted by OM in the summer of 2021 (and since), the player seems to benefit from a strong interest on the part of Pablo Longoria who could therefore return to the charge. His contract runs until 2024 and his managers should give him a good exit, this winter or next summer. Borussia Dortmund, Schalke 04, RB Leipzig and… Naples would also be on the spot.

Tudor’s offensive animation disappoints

The latest news, the Marseille decision-makers were planning to bring in two elements during the January transfer window. An attacking midfielder and a central defender. Gerard Deulofeu can evolve as a center forward, or even be aligned as a second striker or left winger. His arrival would certainly help Igor Tudor to solve his problems in the offensive sector. The Croatian technician seems to have difficulty in offering effective animation.

As a reminder, OM face OL at the Orange Vélodrome stadium tonight in a decisive match for the future. The Marseille team remains on 4 games without success (with only 1 draw). The situation could tip into crisis if Igor Tudor’s men do not beat their Lyon rivals. In the standings, the Marseille club currently points to 6e position, with 24 points: he finds himself 9 points from the 2e place held by Lens and 14 points from the first occupied by Paris.
