He played against OM last July
The Swiss U19 international is currently playing at Servette Geneva and has already played five games with the A team in the first division last season. An agreement has reportedly been reached between the two clubs and a five-year contract awaits him. The 1.94m defender had notably faced OM exactly a year ago, in a pre-season match lost by his team (1-3).
The daily also announces that the Marseille club is waiting for another central defender, “more experienced”, without revealing the name. An agreement is expected in the next few hours for a player who is not William Saliba, returning to Arsenal after his successful loan to Marseille last season. Meanwhile, the next warm-up match is scheduled for this Saturday against Norwich (6 p.m.).
