French giants Marseille plan to recruit another quality centre forward before the summer transfer window closes, according to new boss Michel.
The Spanish coach recently took over the reigns from Marcelo Bielsa and he has now moved to reveal that signing another striker to challenge Michy Batshuayi for a starting berth is the priority.
“Everyone agrees on this, we need a new striker. The club knows my opinion on the matter,” Michel said at a press conference.
And while OM have been linked with a bid for Ajax’s Arkadiusz Milik, the latest reports suggest the Ligue 1 side will not be making a move on the Poland international.
Marseille stayed without a host of attack-minded footballers this summer, including Andre-Pierre Gignac, Andre Ayew, Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin, so no wonder they are in the market for attacking reinforcements.
OM suffered two 1-0 defeats at the start of the new league campaign, and they can be backed at 8/13 to defeat Troyes and finally put some points on the board.
