Lucas Ocampos set for permanent Marseille stay

Le Parisien has suggested that Marseile hope to turn Lucas Ocampos’ loan deal into permanent move at the end of the season.

The Argentine footballer has shown a great deal of potential since joining OM on a short-term loan, and everything suggests the 20-year-old will be staying at Stade Velodrome for the foreseeable future.

A clause in his contract stipulates that automatic purchase option would be activated in case Marseille qualify for the Champions League, but that is no longer a sure thing.

Namely, OM sit five points adrift of a top 3 position with with just three games to go, although that does not mean Ocampos will not be staying at the club beyond the current season.

Le Parisien claims that Marseille officials have been impressed with the youngster’s performances and they will give their best to try and agree a transfer fee with Monaco.

The interesting thing is that the two clubs are vying for the final Champions League berth, with OM priced at 6/5 to see off their league rivals on Sunday.
