Lazio Rome has made a significant move in their pursuit of French international Mattéo Guendouzi, as they have presented a new offer to secure his services. The midfielder’s future at Olympique de Marseille (OM) has been uncertain for several weeks, with him not featuring in Marcelino’s plans.

Following a disappointing performance against Panathinaikos, Guendouzi’s departure from OM seemed imminent, and the Italian club has been actively advancing in negotiations during the final days of the transfer window. According to reports from FootMercato, Lazio Rome, who have qualified for this year’s UEFA Champions League, has tabled a fresh bid of €13 million, along with an additional €5 million in bonuses, making the total offer amount to €18 million. This new offer slightly surpasses their previous bid of €15 million, which was made a few days ago.

The increased offer from Lazio Rome raises questions about whether it will be enough to convince OM to part ways with Guendouzi. The French club now faces a crucial decision regarding the future of their talented midfielder.

Guendouzi’s potential move to Lazio Rome would see him join a club competing at the highest level of European football. The opportunity to play in the prestigious UEFA Champions League could be an enticing prospect for the 22-year-old midfielder.

OM, on the other hand, must carefully evaluate the financial aspects of the deal, as well as consider the impact of Guendouzi’s potential departure on their squad depth and overall team dynamics.

As the transfer window draws to a close, all eyes will be on OM’s response to Lazio Rome’s latest bid. Will they be swayed by the increased offer, or will they hold firm and retain Guendouzi for the upcoming season?

Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain – the future of Mattéo Guendouzi hangs in the balance, and fans eagerly await the outcome of this intriguing transfer saga.
