Olympique de Marseille is trying to strengthen its ranks and has therefore decided to target a player who has recently discovered the French team: Jonathan Clauss.
Since his arrival at RC Lens in the summer of 2020, Jonathan Clauss turned out. First in the eyes of the staff and Blood and Gold players, then in the eyes of the general public. A late hatching for the twenty-nine-year-old right-back, but which allowed him to taste the joy of being selected in the French team and to wear the tricolor jersey twice last March. The native of Strasbourg now has some serious suitors, including Olympique de Marseille.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Marseille club took the lead and made a proposal to Jonathan Clauss. The journalist indicates that the discussions are ongoing and that the possibility for the two parties to reach an agreement is widely conceivable. It will then remain to convince RC Lens to let their Blue go. It could also be the right time for the northern club since Jonathan Clauss has only one year left on his contract, linked to the Lensoise entity until June 2023.
Suppress the Lirola flop
Faced with the flop Pol Lirola, unable to confirm all the hopes placed in him by Marseille this season after a convincing first year on loan, Pablo Longoria and the Marseille recruiters hope to close the deal with Jonathan Clauss as soon as possible.
