Transfer Speculation: Emir SpahicBy: Richard | August 16th, 2012
Due to our financial woes we haven’t been nearly as active in the transfer window as we need to be. Limitations of being broke frankly sucks and as fans we’ve had to spend the summer knowing that quite possibly everyone on the squad is up for sale. Luckily OM brass have remained somewhat shrewd in dealing with potential suitors keeping our squad largely intact. Now with the departure of Alou Diarra, we finally have a bit of cash to spend in the market.
Marseille seemed to have turned their attention to former Montpellier defender and current captain of the Bosnian national team Emir Spahic. Being one of the key players in Montpellier’s rise to dominance, Spahic take his trade to Sevilla side La Liga where he has continued his success. Despite this, Sevilla have decided to enter talks with OM over a possible transfer for the defender. Known as sort of a hot head on the pitch, Spahic isn’t afraid to get in the mix often racking up quite a few cards in the process. Personally I think this is just the sort of player OM needs and I can see an instant connection between him and the fans. Ever since the departure of Lorik Cana we’ve been missing that player who isn’t afraid to take a crazy tackle and spill some blood for the team. Supposedly the figure to bring Spahic over is a reported 2M €, whether Marseille are willing to pay this is yet to be seen but fingers crossed that this does indeed happen.
