Mercato: OM have placed their pawns on the promising Nico

Considered a great hope for FC Barcelona, ​​midfielder Nico was approached by Olympique de Marseille. But for the moment, the Spaniard is still expected to start training under the orders of Blaugrana coach Xavi.

Nico, an idea followed by OM.

After the departure of Boubacar Kamara, at the end of his contract, for Aston Villa, Olympique de Marseille aims to strengthen its midfield in this summer transfer window. In this position, the hottest track clearly leads Axel Witsel, free since the end of his Dortmund contract and currently in advanced negotiations with the Marseille club.

But unsurprisingly, the Belgian international is not the only target of Marseille president Pablo Longoria.

Information taken from Nico

Indeed, according to information from the Catalan daily Sport on Thursday, the vice-champion of France, at the request of coach Jorge Sampaoli, took the temperature concerning FC Barcelona midfielder Nico! Less in the spotlight compared to the closes of Pedri and Gavi, the 20-year-old is still considered a very promising prospect for the Blaugrana.

Appeared 27 times last season in La Liga, the Spaniard has a contract until June 2024 with an estimated value of 20 million euros. For the moment, the Catalans have decided to close the door to a departure on this period of transfers of Nico, expected to begin preparation with the group at the disposal of coach Xavi. However, this situation is not frozen…

A file that could evolve

Indeed, the position of Bara could eventually evolve in the event of one or more reinforcements in this sector of play at the vice-champion of Spain. In the midfield, the Spanish technician considers Nico, mainly used by Ronald Koeman at the start of the 2021-2022 season, as a simple replacement solution and arrivals could therefore push him out in order to free up cash. A track to watch for OM.
