Pablo Longoria did not hide it on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup, he would not say no to the signing of Azzedine Ounahi in the winter transfer window. The head of OM did not say a word in the air.
” Do I like Ounahi? It’s like you’re asking me if I love Sofyan Amrabat “. The president of Olympique de Marseille did not hesitate when he discussed in the press the case of the Moroccan international midfielder from SCO Angers, who is coming off an incredible World Cup with the Atlas Lions. As for the Ligue 1 club, who will have to fight hard to save his place in the elite, we are well aware that it will be difficult to keep one of the revelations of the recent World Cup in Qatar 2022. If Azzedine Ounahi clarified that he had not decided on his immediate future, and had not a preferred European destination, the Italian media believe that the Moroccan midfielder can quickly land in Serie A. Napoli has been published several times as a possible destination for the 22-year-old player, who was linked to SCO until 2026, and whom Strasbourg had found forward at the Mohammed VI Academy, but a different scenario is coming out this Christmas Day.
Ounahi at OM, this is not a joke
Citing the Azzedine Ounahi file, Gazzetta dello Sport confirms that Aurelio de Laurentiis never showed interest in the Moroccan player as Napoli’s interest was fictitious. But another Italian superpower would be really active in trying to sign Azzedine Ounahi, that is Inter. Determined to return to the position, the current fifth in the Italian championship could quickly make a financial proposal to Saïd Chabane, the boss of SCO Angers. But the Italian sports daily still clarifies that in this case Inter must deal with a real competitor, namely Olympique de Marseille. Although OM seems to be late, especially due to their financial power, Pablo Longoria has often managed to tie up operations that appear to be impossible on paper. And on the side of the Interist leaders, we are cautious as the plague from the boss of the Marseille club regarding Azzedine Ounahi.
