Find below the three information that should not be missed this Saturday, August 06, 2022 concerning Olympique de Marseille.
Mercato OM: A new offer for Bakambu?
Cédric Bakambu arrived at Olympique de Marseille last winter after his lucrative stint in China. If he managed to find the net a few times (4 goals in Ligue 1), he is far from having conquered everyone on the Old Port. What to see him cast off this offseason?
In any case, he will not be retained by the Olympian decision-makers. It remains to be seen whether he would be willing to leave Marseille? Apparently not as he recently rebuffed Celta Vigo’s advances. Another suitor seems to come to his door according to the Turkish press.
Indeed, Fotomaç indicates that Fenerbahçe would like to enlist the Congolese striker this summer!

He would be on the shelves of the Turkish club which wants to strengthen in attack and would have more financial freedom after the sale of Kim Min-Jae to Napoli. Still according to the same source, meetings between the different parties would be scheduled quickly.
Bakambu with Luan Peres next season?
The most expensive jersey in Ligue 1? That of OM!
While there is often talk in the news of the amounts of equipment supplier contracts for clubs, the price of the shirt for the base supporter is less often discussed. Footpack, a site specializing in football equipment, has conducted its small survey of the prices of Ligue 1 club tunics in stores. The most expensive is apparently the Olympique de Marseille jersey…
According to Footpack, without flocking, OM shares the price of the most expensive jersey in Ligue 1 with Nice, Rennes and Lyon. You will have to pay 90€ to obtain the adult size replica jersey of one of these four teams.
On the other hand, if we add flocking to the jersey, the OM tunic becomes the most expensive in France, just ahead of those of PSG and Lyon.

Mercato OM: Saliba’s masterclass… for Arsenal!
William Saliba was excellent last season with Olympique de Marseille. Only concern, he was only loaned by Arsenal to the Olympian club. If many supporters still hope to see him return, this possibility is dwindling over the days…
Indeed Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal coach, really seems to be counting on the new French international this season. So last night for the opening of the Premier League, he did not hesitate to start him. And as in the last friendly matches, Saliba was excellent! Even more than that since he was elected man of the match during the victory of the Gunners on the lawn of Crystal Palace.

William Saliba, first ever game in the Premier League, at 21, away at Crystal Palace and he bossed it.
His stats are remarkable:
0 foul committed
67% duels won
94% accurate passes
Man of the game. So impressive.

This is Saliba’s first start in the Premier League with Arsenal, it seems like a big lie when you see what performance he is giving us.
