Mercato: the TOP 5 files of the day that should not be missed
1. Rennes swoops down on Kalimuendo!
With the arrival of Arthur Theate and the expected arrival of Joe Rodon, Stade Rennais has completed its defense recruitment. The Breton club is now busy recruiting a striker. In this sector, the Parisian Arnaud Kalimuendo is at the very top of the short-list of Rennes leaders.
According to L’Equipe, the player loaned to Lens for the last two seasons would be the priority of the Rouge et Noir. The Rennes management has an envelope estimated at between 25 and 30 million euros to try to complete this file, by reinvesting part of the money received with the sale of Mathys Tel to Bayern Munich (28.5 M€ including bonus ). This sum may be enough to convince PSG, which values its player between 20 and 25 million euros.
2. OM relaunch the Fofana track
Announced as possible leaving this summer, Seko Fofana continues his summer preparation with RC Lens. But things could change for the Lensois midfielder in the coming weeks. Indeed, La Provence affirms that Olympique de Marseille did not rule out the idea of bringing in the Ivorian international. According to the regional daily, the file even returned in a very good place on the table of Olympian decision-makers.
It remains to be seen whether OM has the means to close such a file. Nothing is excluded, writes the local newspaper. It will still take very good arguments from the Marseille president Pablo Longoria to snatch the signature of a player estimated at 30 million euros minimum by the RCL …
3. Amavi cart by Tudor!
Back after an inconclusive loan to OGC Nice in the second half of the season, left-back Jordan Amavi hoped to relaunch at Olympique de Marseille under new coach Igor Tudor. But according to information from the FC Marseille media, later confirmed by the regional daily La Provence, the former Aston Villa player was dismissed by the Croatian technician.
Pushed towards the exit on this summer transfer window, the Phocen has been training on the sidelines of the group, like midfielder Kevin Strootman, since returning from the internship in England. With the recent arrival of Nuno Tavares in his position, Amavi now seems condemned to a departure to find an interesting playing time.
4. Nice thinks Such
With the return of Jordan Amavi Marseille at the end of his loan, OGC Nice is looking for a left-back for next season. In recent days, the name of Layvin Kurzawa (PSG) has circulated. But the Parisian is not the only track studied by the Aiglons. According to the Manchester Evening News, The Gym are interested in Manchester United defender Alex Telles.
In Manchester, the Brazilian international is now only Erik ten Hag’s third choice for his post, behind rookie Tyrell Malacia and Luke Shaw. The idea of a departure may tempt him in the hope of getting more playing time. Now it remains to be seen whether Nice is a destination that can appeal to the former element of FC Porto.
5. No offer for Icardi…
It’s no secret that Paris Saint-Germain striker Mauro Icardi is no longer in the plans of his leaders and finds himself pushed to the exit on this summer transfer window. But according to information from the daily L’Equipe, the Argentinian international has not received any concrete offers since the start of this transfer period.
Between his disappointing performance and his XXL salary, the former Inter Milan player has a very low popularity rating on the market despite PSG’s desire to find him a way out. The situation of Icardi could all the same settle in the last straight line of the transfer window when certain teams will have to adapt urgently.
