Loaned with an option to buy from Fiorentina to OM, Pol Lirola (23) hopes to stay a little longer with the Marseille club. A real revelation last season, he quickly established himself as one of the best Marseillais of the season and even more under the orders of Jorge Sampaoli. And if for a while, Fiorentina hoped to keep the Spaniard, the latter swears only by OM.
According to information from Provence, Pol Lirola would only see himself in Marseille next season. If he was disappointed by the fact that the Olympian management has not raised his option to buy at 12 million for the moment, he wishes to stay in France despite several offers abroad. Before slamming the door (only 2 weeks after his arrival), Gennaro Gattuso had informed his management and the player that he wanted to install him as a holder at Fiorentina. With his departure, OM’s chances of keeping Lirola are even greater. But the player’s situation is unlikely to change for the moment. Fiorentina are waiting to choose their new coach.
