Olympique de Marseille plans to recruit a new striker this winter. OM should nevertheless be wary of Rafael Benitez. The Everton coach is also interested in a target of Pablo Longoria.
A bad turn by Rafael Benitez against OM laid bare
Although quite active during the last transfer window, theOlympique de Marseille failed to afford a new centre forward. Pablo Longoria suffered many refusals during the last transfer window. WhileArkadiusz Milik, just back in competition, is the only 9 confirmed of OM, Jorge Sampaoli wishes an understudy to the Pole. Reason why the Phocaean club should still activate during the winter transfer window to strengthen its offensive sector. For several weeks, the name ofAlexis Sanchez is mentioned as a potential recruit from Marseille. Like Milik in the first half of last season, the Chilean striker is suffering at Inter Milan and has a good exit. Only in this case, the Provençal club will have to beware of competition from Rafael Benitez, the Everton coach.
Alexis Sanchez in Benitez’s little papers
According to the latest indiscretions of Calcio Mercato, the Spanish technician wants to recruit the 32-year-old striker this winter. According to the Italian publication, the Toffees coach would even be willing to offer an exchange to Inter Milan for the transfer of Alexis Sanchez. Rafael Benitez would like to include the Turkish Cenk Tosun in the deal. But the Nerrazzurri would not be interested in this player and would wait for a nice transfer fee for the former Blaugrana. Who played only 5 games (85 minutes) this season for an assist. Lacking playing time, the Chilean should therefore leave Lombardy before the expiration of his contract in 2023. Now remains to be seen whether OM will try its luck to revive Sanchez’s career in half-mast since his signing from Manchester United.
