Marseille want to challenge PSG for the title next season

Olympique Marseille wants to challenge Paris Saint-Germain for the title next season. The club finished in second place behind the Parisians on a twelve point gap and will make their return to the Champions League next season. Head coach Andre Villas-Boas is keen on adding new fire power to his squad as the Portuguese manager is looking to sign forwards.

Marseille have already brough in Leonardo Balerdi (Borussia Dortmund) and Alvaro Gonzalez (Villarreal), and now former Chelsea and Spurs boss wants to sign new forward. “We are still trying to finalise additional options: an attacker, and the arrival of a left sided player depends on the evolution of [Christopher] Rocchia”, he told La Provence.

“It depends on several things, his extension, the clubs that are interested in him and the options we can have in this transfer window. This transfer window is important because, last season, we were the team which used the fewest players for more than 200 minutes. Only sixteen.”
