Clubs line up for Ounas

Adam Ounas impressed for Algeria in the Africa Cup of Nations, with Sevilla, Real Betis and Olympique Marseille seeking the Napoli winger.

Still only 22 years old, Ounas can play on the right, left or as a support striker and was purchased from Girondins de Bordeaux for €10m in the summer of 2017.

He failed to get regular playing time under Maurizio Sarri or Carlo Ancelotti, leading many to expect a summer exit.

Marseille and Besiktas target Durmisi

Olympique Marseille and Besiktas are battling for Lazio wing-back Riza Durmisi, who barely played after his €7.5m move from Real Betis.

The Danish international, of Albanian descent, made the move a year ago, but managed only 19 competitive appearances last season, most of them off the bench.

He had numerous injury problems to his back and thigh, so is expected to at least go out on loan this summer.

According to L’Equipe in France, Olympique Marseille are keeping a close eye on the situation and are ready to make their bid.

In addition, it’s reported Inter offered Miranda to Roma, perhaps as part of an exchange deal with other players.

Fiorentina after Luiz Gustavo

Fiorentina are interested in a €10m swoop for Olympique Marseille midfielder Luiz Gustavo, according to reports in France.

According to La Provence newspaper, Fiorentina have set their sights on Luiz Gustavo, who is available for around €10m.

Kevin Strootman would be on the market, but the club feels there’s a better chance of selling Luiz Gustavo quickly.

Strootman set for Roma return?

Kevin Strootman could make a sensational return to Roma just 12 months after his €25m sale to Olympique Marseille.

The 29-year-old midfielder made it clear on several occasions that he’d been told to find a new club last summer, not being part of new director of sport Monchi or Coach Eusebio Di Francesco’s plans.

He was sold to Marseille in August 2018 for €25m, but struggled to settle in and contributed one goal with five assists in 34 competitive games.

Balotelli to remain with Marseille?

Mario Balotelli is a free agent, but despite interest from Parma and Brescia, it’s reported he could sign a new deal at Olympique Marseille.

The Italy international joined Marseille in January from OGC Nice, scoring seven goals in 15 Ligue 1 games.

His contract runs out on June 30, but according to Il Giorno newspaper, SuperMario could decide to remain with the French side.

This would mean snubbing interest from Parma and his hometown club Brescia.
