Olympique Lyonnais wants to recruit Isaak Touré, OM’s target for the summer transfer window. But the Marseillais still have a head start.
A few weeks ago, we revealed to you exclusively on Foot Transfer market that Olympique de Marseille wanted to enlist Isaak Touré, the 19-year-old defender of Le Havre, considered one of the most promising in Europe in his position. And the negotiations were already launched at the beginning of the month, when the colossus was in the Marseille city, while other European clubs, such as Eintracht Frankfurt, were also on the spot.
And now the dailyTeam confirms our information concerning the Marseille interest. The newspaper thus explains that he is indeed, as announced by us, a serious option to replace William Saliba, whose chances of staying at the Vélodrome seem quite slim at the time of writing these lines. According to the media, the player would cost OM and other interested clubs 5 million euros.
OL go on the attack
Precisely, the sports daily indicates that a club is ready to grill OM on this file: OL. Often opposed on the transfer window, the two Olympiques are very fond of the player, and a real fight is announced, while Wolfsburg is also interested in his services. The media indicates that the U19 international player wants everything to be settled before June 18, the start date of the Euro in his category.
Even if the newspaper affirms that OL have taken the lead in this matter, our information does not really go in this direction, and it is indeed OM who are always one step ahead, to such an extent that is very close to the club chaired by Pablo Longoria. Whatever happens, we will quickly be fixed! Jorge Sampaoli, who had asked for recruits from the Spaniard, therefore risks having his first nice gift of the summer.
