Mercato OM: Newcastle do on Bamba Dieng
Eager to strengthen on the front of the attack, Newcastle would absolutely recruit Bemba Dieng. The Senegalese international would be the priority track for the Magpies with Lyonnais Lucas Paqueta.
According to information from 90 min, Newcastle, which has passed the Saudi flag and which benefits from colossal new means, would be ready to splurge to recruit Marseille Bemba Dieng and Lyonnais Lucas Paqueta. After having recruited Bruno Guimares in Lyon and Sven Botman in Lille, the English formation would like to continue its market in Ligue 1. Revealed last season by Jorge Sampaoli, Bemba Dieng was put aside by Igor Tudor who does not count on him for the upcoming season. Newcastle had already expressed their interest in the 22-year-old striker last winter without making a concrete offer. The media indicates that Bemba Dieng’s agent is currently discussing with Marseille leaders to facilitate the Senegalese’s transfer to the Premier League. The 22-year-old is also said to be on the books for other Premier League sides. Everton and Leeds have already expressed interest in signing the Senegalese international.

Newcastle, unsurprisingly, have rival interests in both – and as we’ve seen already this summer, they won’t pay more than they think a player is worth.

Today, he is the player who could bring more to this team
Our consultant Jean-Charles De Bono returned last week for FCM on the situation that Bemba Dieng is going through at OM. According to the former OM player, a transfer is not to be ruled out provided the Senegalese plays so that he continues to increase in value. He also believes that Dieng is currently one of the biggest market values of the Marseille workforce.
“Tudor is looking for players who are able to play in their system and the only one who really fits is Bemba. He is a depth player who dribbles a lot, who provokes the ball at the foot and who makes a lot of calls. Despite all this, he refuses to use it. I don’t mind the club wanting to sell him. All last season I said that Bemba was a diamond in the rough, that he had to be trained, supported. He could be a real added value for the club. Today, he is the player who could bring more to this team. I can understand that the club needs cash, that it needs to sell players. what I don’t understand, however, is why not play it. A player like him, if he plays, he will inevitably increase in value. If Bemba had more playing time and he turned out to be a good player, the added value would certainly increase. It needs to be highlighted. He’s your player. I even think that he is the ideal player for OM today. It’s certainly not by leaving him on the sidelines that you’re going to make money. I think he is right to want to go to arm wrestling and to want to stay at the club. » Jean-Charles De Bono – Source: Marseille Football Club (01/08/2022)
Mercato OM: A big step forward for Sanchez!
Before being able to commit to Olympique de Marseille, Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez first had to terminate his contract with Inter. It is now done!
As mentioned in recent days, Alexis Sanchez could well be the next recruit of Olympique de Marseille. The Chilean international has never been so close to signing for OM. He first had to reach an agreement with Inter to amicably terminate his last year of contract. It is now done. Indeed the Italian club formalized yesterday the breach of contract with the former Arsenal striker.
“The club would like to thank Alexis for his three seasons in nerazzurro, punctuated by three trophies, and wishes him the best for the rest of his career,” the statement added. Inter would have agreed to pay him compensation of around 5 million euros to conclude this early termination.
The way is therefore clear for Pablo Longoria who now hopes to finalize the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in the coming hours.

For Nabil Djelli Alexis Sanchez will not be enough for Olympique de Marseille
On the L’Equipe channel, the debate revolved around the added value of Alexis Sanchez in the workforce of Olympique de Marseille. According to journalist Nabil Djellit, his arrival does not solve all the problems facing the Marseillais, even on the ground.
“Alexis Sanchez, he’s a big player, there’s no problem, but the providential man, that won’t be enough for Olympique de Marseille. We are going too far. There is currently fire with the coach with in particular an XXL mistrust on the part of his executives. You talked about friendly matches, it was a disaster. Their victory is against Marignane Gignac, remember. On Sunday, they were outclassed by AC Milan, the whole defense was renewed… We saw him in great difficulty. Alexis Sanchez, he does not play side, he does not play central defender… He will not be able to solve everything! Him, it must be the icing on the cake but the cake is on the icing because no one is going to eat it. » Nabil Djellit – Source: La Chaîne L’Equipe (01/08/22)
