OM Mercato: After Kamara, Aston Villa is targeting another Marseillais
The season over, many moves are expected at Olympique de Marseille. OM have already launched their summer transfer window with the departure of Boubacar Kamara. After 17 years of good and loyal service, the versatile young midfielder refused to sign a new lease with his training club in order to continue his career in the Premier League. Free of any contract, the Marseille Minot has indeed committed to Aston Villa for the next four seasons, i.e. until June 2026. A very good signing for the Villans, who could welcome a second executive from the Olympique de Marseille this summer.
Daily Express indeed ensures that the British club does not drop the case for Duje Caleta-Car. The profile of the Croatian defender would please the coach a lot Steven Gerard, who wishes to have him under his command next season. The British coach was to begin negotiations with OM with a view to securing his signature this summer. This persistent interest from Aston Villa does not necessarily displease the Marseille leaders, who are still hoping for a nice check on the future departure of the Croatian defender.
OM Mercato: Aston Villa knows the price to pay for Caleta-Car
Arrived in July 2018 from RB Salzburg, Duje Caleta-Car is linked to OM in June 2023. The 25-year-old, who played very little at the start of the season, has regained his place in Marseille’s starting XI in recent weeks, with 24 starts in Ligue 1 this season. Nevertheless, Duje Caleta-Car is not sure of spending the summer in Marseille. In search of cash, the Marseille management would consider selling it this summer, in order to prevent it from leaving for free in a year. Still according to the same source, the Marseille leaders are waiting for a check for 18 million euros for his transfer. It now remains to be seen whether Aston Villa will respond favorably to the financial demands of OM.
