An Algerian international tracked by OM?

Olympique de Marseille is agitated on the transfer window, in this period of the World Cup. The Marseille club, who could lose Gerson and plans to recruit a Portuguese to replace the Brazilianwould have a new defender in his sights.

Ramy Bensebaini, Inter Borussia Monchengladbach

Is the Bundesliga, and the Borussia Mönchengladbach club in particular, becoming Pablo Longoria’s new eldorado for OM? Recently, the press indicated that the 4th in Ligue 1 had in its sights France team striker Marcus Thuram. The former Guingampais, aged 25 and targeted by European leaders, is not the only player at the end of his club’s contract to interest OM.

Indeed, according to information from Young soccer players, President Pablo Longoria would look into Ramy Bensebaini. The striker defender (6 goals in 16 games this season) has only six months left on his contract with his club. His profile and his versatility, in addition to his contractual situation, are of interest to Olympique de Marseille.

Tavares in question?

Ramy Bensebaini, who can evolve in the axis of the defense as on the left, could replace the Ivorian Eric Bailly, too often injured this season, or, as a piston, the Portuguese Nuno Tavares. Loaned without a purchase option to OM by Arsenal, like William Saliba last year, Nuno Tavares could return to the Gunners in the summer of 2023, and leave Marseille without a solution on the left, while the former Benfica player has no replacement this season. Sead Kolasinac, left-handed, is used more as a central defender by Igor Tudor, while Jordan Amavi, on whom OM do not count, is on loan at Getafe.

If OM is a priori targeting Ramy Bensebaini for next summer, end of contract requires, the French club could also make an offer to Borussia Mönchengladbach in January 2023, while the 26-year-old Algerian will a priori be available at a reduced price. (20M euros according to Transfermarkt, that said). Nuno Tavares, often criticized this season, could then worry about his place as holder, little discussed for lack of competition.
