As reported by Amazon and Foot Mercato tonight, Marseille have re-entered negotiations with Napoli over the possible signing of Algerian international winger Adam Ounas.
Pablo Longoria, Marseille’s President, is currently attempting to negotiate a loan with option to buy deal with Napoli, but the Serie A club are not being very cooperative.
The player’s agent is in Naples now in an attempt to unblock the situation for their 24-year-old client.
OM only want an option, not an obligation to buy, in the event that a deal is done.
Ounas has already spoken with Jorge Sampaoli, the Marseille boss, and has decided that he wants to join the Ligue 1 club’s project.
Napoli however don’t want to let Ounas go – new manager Luciano Spalletti intends to count on the player and even wants to see his board offer the Algerian a contract extension.
Whatever happens next, Ounas must get it right, after two consecutive failed loan spells at OGC Nice and Crotone in the last two campaigns.
