With the departure of Gerson and the wound of‘Amine HaritI‘Olympic Marseille would be looking for a player capable of developing behind the striker. The club was hesitant to reinforce the scorer position but would have changed its mind after the arrival of Ruslan Malinovskyi and would like to take an attacking midfielder.

OM are not interested in Claudinho

According to Daily Mercato asserts that an offer was even made for clauinho. The specialized media, Zenith St Petersburg would claim 40M€ to let the Brazilian attacking midfielder slip away.

OM: PSG beaten! Ligue 1 relaunched?

Olympique de Marseille is having a record first half of the season under Igor Tudor. Despite everything, the Olympians were only third without credible title hopes, due to PSG, until Sunday evening. What if that had changed last night?

Indeed, Paris Saint-Germain lost last night on the lawn of Rennes, a goal to nil. The second defeat for Galtier’s men since the post-World Cup recovery, after the setback (3-1) suffered in Lens a few weeks ago. Result ? OM are only five points behind the leader with half the league still to play (see ranking below). What to believe again?

Be careful, however, because the PSG scorer, Stade Rennais, took the opportunity to get back in the standings, in ambush, not far from the Marseillais. Without forgetting that we will have to face the Bretons this Friday at the Vélodrome stadium in the sixteenth finals of the Coupe de France.

All direct competitors to OM for European places (Lens, Monaco, Rennes, Lille) won this weekend. At the same time, Lyon lost on their lawn, two goals to one, against Strasbourg.
