During his press conference ahead of his Marseille team’s fixture against Saint-Étienne, manager Jorge Sampaoli notably discussed the club’s potential transfer dealings – with Montpellier striker Andy Delort identified as a target.
With the 29-year-old being strong linked with a move to Christophe Galtier’s Nice, OM are keeping tabs on the situation, even if MHSC’s asking price is deemed too high by the club, according to L’Équipe.
“He’s a player who we’re interested in, and one who has good quality in front of goal. I’ve also seen him as a number nine for OM. I spoke about him when I arrived at the club – but right now it’s difficult in financial terms.”
