By: Manu Tournoux

Olympique de Marseille have identified the offensive reinforcement requested by Gennaro Gattuso for the winter transfer window.

Gennaro Gattuso has made it clear: to succeed in his second part of the season on the OM bench, the Marseille coach will need reinforcements in the winter transfer window, particularly offensively. Enrolling a new winger is therefore a priority for him. And if this potential recruit is also more skillful in front of goal, the Italian will not complain…

Good news for him, the Marseille leaders have apparently identified the ideal profile. Author this year of 38 goals in competitions combined with Los Angeles FC, Denis Bouanga would be in the sights of Ciel et Blanc. According to The OM Minutediscussions are even already underway between the Marseille club and the player, aged 29.

An OM-Rennes match for Bouanga?

Also courted by Stade Rennais, the former Stéphanois would like to leave LAFC, where he is under contract until 2025. Journalist Tiago Brandao, MLS specialist, specifies that he wants to return to Europe for ” family reasons “. An opportunity for OM to seize, even if the Californian franchise will not let it slip away so easily.

While the market value of the native of Le Mans is estimated at 8 million euros by the specialized site Transfermarkt, LAFC would not intend to sell him for less than 10 million euros. At that price, will Marseille be able to afford it? In any case, the prospect would not displease Denis Bouanga who recently expressed his attachment to OM.

Bouanga ” dream “ of OM

“OM has always been in the back of my mindthe recent Major League Soccer finalist told Forbesend of October. I’m starting to get older so I don’t know at all if it’s with Marseille in mind or not (to recruit me), but for me it’s a dream. Everyone has dreams and my dream is to one day sign for Marseille. »
