OM President Pablo Longoria has been working on the summer transfer period of the Olympic Games for several months. To strengthen the Jorge Sampaoli attack, one of the studied tracks would be the Guinean international forward Mohamed Bayo.
The summer transfer window should be moved again on the OM side. The Marseille club will have to strengthen this summer with the prospect of playing the Champions League next season. According to Foot Mercato, Clermont striker Mohamed Bayo would be one of the tracks the club studied in Marseille. The latter scored 22 goals and added 6 assists in Ligue 2 during the 2020/2021 season. In its first year in Ligue 1, the Guinean International has had no less than 14 successes.

However, Marseille will not be the only club to appreciate the qualities of midfielder Clermont Foot. West Ham and Frankfurt would also be in this set. The amount for the transfer claimed by his club could be around 10 million euros.
“It’s a unique moment.” The end of the club’s first season in League 1. The fans are great, it’s the highlight of the club’s work. I am very happy today. I came to see the matches in Ligue 2, bit by bit, with a small budget, we were able to fight to go up, to go up, then keep up, it’s huge. This is definitely my last game in Clermont. I am very moved and happy. Playing in front of family and friends is magic.. Mohammad Bayo – source: Premium video

“Normally, I don’t like to talk about individual situations. The transition period is important, we have to improve the staff, we have to be demanding. Players left must be replaced. We want a short staff so that the players take turns. But our goal is to build a logical project. A few weeks ago, we started working on several files, in the attack, in the middle of the backup with the departure of Kamara. We are thinking about how to improve the workforce. Who can arrive at OM? In France, we like the transfer window more and more. It’s something Italian. I can’t give names. We work in a club. We’re discussing Sampaoli. What we can promise is a lot of work to increase the quality of the workforce. (…) It is very important to be competitive in the Champions League. That is one of our goals. We know the historical difficulty of the French clubs that qualified in C1 for chain competitions, between the championship, the Champions League … The level of difficulty of the Champions League, not only physical, but especially mental, is very important. You have to be well mentally prepared to be competitive in the Champions League and regularly in the league. It will therefore be important to have players who meet the requirements of the club. Jorge Sampaoli’s comments don’t bother me. They reflect the level of requirements that we also have internally. ” Pablo Longoria – source: RMC (25.05.2022)
