The Olympique de Marseille have been on the lookout for winter reinforcements, and the name of Lucien Agoumé had emerged with force in recent times. However, despite the interest shown by the Marseille leaders, it seems that the player is not ultimately very excited about the sporting project proposed by the Phocaean club.
Agoumé, who has only made one appearance this season for the Lombard team, is looking for playing time to develop his experience on the pitch. Loaned out successively to several clubs, he returned to Inter Milan this summer, but the prospect of little playing time seems to be pushing him to consider a change this winter.
If Marseille’s offer had convinced Inter Milan, it was ultimately the player’s doubts that pushed Pablo Longoria and his partners to cut short negotiations with the player. The FC Sevilla, on the other hand, would ultimately have the favor of the young French player and therefore becomes the favorite to attract Agoumé.
The rejection of Lucien Agoumé by the Marseille leaders is a blow for the club, which was looking to add a young and talented midfielder to its ranks. However, it is understandable that the player would be hesitant to join a club where he is unlikely to get much playing time.
The FC Sevilla, on the other hand, is a more attractive option for Agoumé, as he is likely to be given more playing time at the Spanish club. The Andalusians are currently in third place in La Liga and are looking to challenge for the title, and Agoumé could be a valuable addition to their squad.
It remains to be seen whether the FC Sevilla will be able to agree a deal with Inter Milan for Agoumé, but the player’s rejection of Marseille suggests that a move to Spain is now more likely.
