OM Mercato: Igor Tudor gives the green light for a defender
Following the resounding departure of Jorge SampaoliOM called upon the services of IGor Tudor to take the reins of the first team. The 44-year-old Croatian technician has signed up with the Marseille club for the next two seasons and is already working to redraw the contours of his new workforce.
If he wishes to attract a new midfielder to compensate for the departure of Boubacar Kamara, Igor Tudor would also consider expanding its defensive hinge. A message well understood by the Marseille leaders, who are working behind the scenes to make a new central defender this summer. Several avenues have already been explored in this direction and one of them leads to Riechedly Bazoer.
Able to play in midfield, the versatile defender is officially free of any contract following his departure from Vitesse Arnhem this summer. A boon for OM who quickly began the process of completing their signature. And if the negotiations between the two parties move in the right direction, Riechedly Bazoer expected so far the fateful response of the new Marseille coach. It is now done, since according to several concordant sources, Igor Tudor reportedly finally gave the green light for the 25-year-old’s arrival.

After a stint in the Bundesliga and then in the Eredivisie, Riechedly Bazoer is therefore close to discovering Ligue 1. The insider Z_Hakos recently revealed the existence of a total agreement between the Dutch defender and the Marseille management. Despite competition from Borussia Mönchengladbach, the former Wolfsburg player therefore has a good chance of packing his bags at Olympique de Marseille. The various parties are said to be finalizing the final details for his arrival at OM. Coach Igor Tudor would thus hold his first recruit in Marseille. Other size reinforcements are also expected in Marseille. The name of Dries Mertens is also announced in Marseille.
