The leaders of Olympique de Marseille have had a good summer transfer window overall, but Jorge Sampaoli still points out some shortcomings. The Olympian coach, for example, clarified that he would like to recover a player to come and compete with Luan Peres. Moroccan international Romain Saïss could have a perfect profile …

Who is he ?

Romain Saïss is a 31-year-old Moroccan central defender. This left-hander of 1m88 has 53 selections with Morocco. Passed by Clermont Foot, the HAC, he revealed himself to SCO Angers where he only stayed one season. He joined Wolverhampton in 2016 for a check for € 4m.

Why Saïss would be a good idea for OM?

Our colleague Hakim Zhouri offered us this good transfer window. Journalist for the media Les Lions de l’Atlas, he gives us details about the player and why it is a good idea for OM:

Saïss is elegant and quite technical… He is not a nag!

“Saïss plays left central defender in a defense of 3, he knows how to play central defender in a defense of 2 and also midfielder which is his training position. In Wolverhampton he has nearly 200 matches and 15 goals… he comes to the end of his contract at the end of the year and can therefore engage freely where he wants. Currently at CAN with Morocco where he played the first match against Ghana of the Ayew brothers where Morocco, of which he is the captain, won the match with a score of 1 to 0. It was when he arrived in England that ‘he was pulled back in a 3-way defense and he’s playing with Morocco there too. I think at 3M € the club could let him go… according to my info. Excellent head game a very good raise, elegant and quite technical. It is not a nag it is slender a bit like Luan Pères precisely!  » Hakim zhouri – source: FCMarseille (12/01/2022)

The downside

Is an English salary compatible with OM. A priori, Romain Saïss does not touch an untouchable salary, he would have emoluments estimated at 1.7M € net per year (or around 190,000 € gross / month). An average salary for Marseille staff. It remains to be seen whether Alvaro will leave the club and therefore release this payroll to recruit another defender with the profile of Saïss …
