But Pablo Longoria would still like a reinforcement in this sector of play, a « great striker ». If Dries Mertens, Alexis Sanchez and Alassane Plea have been mentioned, OM would also be looking at Memphis Depay, pushed out by FC Barcelona. The case of the Dutchman is talking a lot this summer and new elements have been brought.
L’OM will play the Champions League next season. And in an attempt to be competitive, Pablo Longoria promised a lively transfer window. Since then, Ruben Blanco, Samuel Gigot, Chancel Mbemba, Isaak Toure and Jonathan Clauss have been recruited. At the level of the attack, however, it is calmer.

Barca don’t want it anymore
the FC Barcelona has achieved a high-flying transfer window so far. The Catalans have notably strengthened their attack. Ousmane Dembele finally extended, Raphinha arrived from Leeds and above all, the superstar Robert Lewandowski landed from Bayern. An XXL offensive transfer window that seems to condemn Memphis Depay.

A big competition
Memphis Depay is therefore more available than ever this summer. A boon for theOM… Well almost. Indeed, the Olympians will have to fight hard to attract the former Lyonnais. Many big European clubs would be on the Dutchman’s trail. In Serie A, theAC MilanI’Inter-Milan and Naples, who just lost Dries Mertens, would be interested. But it does not stop there, since the Juventus would have revived his interest this summer! The Bianconeri had already tried to get him to come free last summer. But it is not only in Italy that we would be interested in Depay. In effect, Tottenham has been cited as an interested club, and theOL would also think of bringing him back after having recorded the returns ofAlexandre Lacazette and of Corentin Tolisso. Moreover, the journalist Gerard Romero confirmed this Tuesday all these previous rumors! In effect, Memphis Depay would have offers from England, Italy and France. However, Fabrizio Romano assured that Tottenham would actually not be interested in the striker of the FC Barcelona.
