Longoria activates a surprising track in defense

OM Mercato: After the departure of Luan Peres at Fenerbahçe, the management of Olympique de Marseille has just activated a surprising track in defense.

OM Mercato: Pablo Longoria rushes on a Colombian defender

The summer transfer window of Olympique de Marseille is currently very active. The management of OM has already managed to get their hands on 7 recruits. And it’s not over, since the Marseille club wants to strengthen itself in key positions. In attack for example, the Marseille leaders are close to recruiters Alexis Sanchez from Inter Milan. The Phocaeans also plan to attract a new central defender.

It must be said that the unexpected transfer of Luan Peres at Fenerbahçe and the uncertainties related to the future of Duje Caleta-Car push the management of OM to strengthen this sector of play before the closing of the summer transfer window. And to do this, recruiters from Olympique de Marseille already have a target in their sights. According to information from foot marketthe Marseillais have set their sights on Jhon Lucumi (24), who is coming off a good season at Genk.

OM Mercato: Tough competition for Jhon Lucumi

Solid and athletic, the Colombian defender has multiplied the good performances within the Belgian formation. And if the Jupiler Pro League resumed this weekend, the future of the young player is still up in the air. And for good reason, Jhon Lucumi refuse so far to extend his contract expiring in June 2024 with KRC Genk. His refusal permanently places his direction with his back to the wall. The Belgian leaders will have to sell him this summer, at the risk of seeing him leave freely in a year. OM would then be ready to welcome him this summer.

But Olympique de Marseille is not alone in this. Ajax Amsterdam and FC Bologna would also be very feared by the versatile profile of Jhon Lucumi. Tutomercatoweb ensures that KRC Genk has already declined an offer of 5 million euros for his player. The leaders of OM are therefore warned, it will be necessary to be very generous in order to win the bet in this case.
