Olympique Marseille Messing with Serie A Teams’ Plans

Olympique Marseille didn’t waste any time getting busy on the transfer market after appointing Roberto De Zerbi. They announced the arrival of Lilian Brassier, whom Milan and Bologna tracked in previous months.

The two Italian sides, who are in the hunt for a center-back, preferably a lefty, will have to turn their attention toward different targets. They are both keen on Union Berlin’s Diogo Leite, Gianluca Di Marzio informs. The Felsinei are on the verge of coming to terms with Arsenal concerning the Riccardo Calafiori transfer for a massive fee.

Olympique Marseille also have another Serie A-linked player in their crosshairs, Mason Greenwood. Juventus and especially Lazio made waves to onboard him from Manchester United. The Ligue 1 side lodged a higher opening bid than the Biancocelesti. Despite that, they continue to be in talks with Inter concerning the prospective acquisition of Valentin Carboni.

According to Alfredo Pedullà, the capital club is plotting to raise their offer to €25M. It might suffice since Manchester United are starting to lower their request. The package includes a hefty resale clause, around 40 or 50 percent.

Lazio wished to keep ahold of their other pieces after losing Luis Alberto, Daichi Kamada, and Felipe Anderson. However, the City Football Group tendered €15M plus add-ons for Taty Castellanos. He’d likely return to Girona if the proposal were accepted. The Biancocelesti, which spent an equivalent sum to purchase him from New York City FC last summer, are thinking about it. They’d have more cash to duel with Olympique Marseille. They already snapped up Tijjani Noslin and Loum Tchaouna up front.
