Mercato Mercato: Sampaoli would like to rob Gerson of the OM! – Football

Looking to strengthen his squad in January, new FC Sville manager Jorge Sampaoli reportedly asked his management to bring in his former protégé at Olympique de Marseille, midfielder Gerson. A first danger in the transfer market for the Phocens?

What if Gerson left Olympique de Marseille this winter?

Admitted last Thursday, Jorge Sampaoli is slowly making his mark on the FC Sville bench. Knowing his new squad, but also pointing out the shortcomings of his group, three months after the opening of the winter transfer window.

And if there is no shortage of ideas about the profiles sought, the Argentine coach could do something new with the old, going in search of a highly valued player in the French championship: Gerson, his former protégé at Olympique de Marseille.

Sampaoli claims Gerson Sville

The Sevillian newspaper Estadio Deportivo explains on Tuesday that Sampaoli has asked his sports director Monchi to launch an offensive for the Brazilian in January. Great architect of the arrival of Gerson Marsella in the summer of 2021 and the success of the former Flamengo in his first year in France, El Pelado considered his former protégé as the potential missing link of his new team.

In this sense, the Andalusians would even have initiated a first contact with the OM, probably to study the feasibility of a transfer of Gerson during the season. Is it credible for the red and whites?

A difficult file in sight?

Economically, yes! Because after having recovered more than 80 million euros in the sale of players this summer, reinvesting only 30 million euros of that amount, the current LaLiga 18 has a priori interesting liquidity. However, the case does not seem easy for the residents of the Ramón Sánchez Pizjun stadium.

Although he does not have a starring role with Igor Tudor this season for Marseille, with 11 appearances and just 522 minutes on the pitch since August, Gerson remains under contract until June 2026. Sville will therefore need to be particularly financially persuasive to convince the Marseilles who had disbursed around €20 million bonus included for the 25-year-old Auriverde.

In your opinion, would OM be interested in accepting Gerson’s departure during the season? Except for a great offer, would you let the Brazilian leave the Marseille club? Do not hesitate to react and discuss in the area add a comment
