Olympique Marseille (OM) is once again creating ripples in the transfer market, with unexpected player acquisitions. The recent inclusion of Ulisses Garcia for defense is a prime example, and more surprises are on the way.
Moumbagna’s Anticipated Move to OM
The name on everyone's lips right now is Faris Moumbagna. The Cameroonian forward, after approval from OM's President Pablo Longoria, is preparing to lace up his boots for Marseille. An offer of 8 million euros for Moumbagna has been given the green light by his current club, Bodo Glimt.
The move locks in Moumbagna, a promising young forward, for a significant period of four and a half years. This has not gone unnoticed, with Manager Gennaro Gattuso publicly expressing his delight over the upcoming signing. Notably, Moumbagna was on the radar of several Premier League teams, further highlighting his potential.
Joining OM: A Brief Delay
The 23-year-old talent from Yaoundé is expected to join the ranks of OM soon. The only things standing in his way are a medical check and the completion of certain administrative formalities. Yet, Moumbagna's arrival at Marseille will be slightly delayed due to his current involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations (CAN). He recently had a spell on the pitch in a match against Guinea.
