OM president Pablo Longoria will have met with the squad of young striker Mohamed-Ali Cho (18) from SCO Angers, which is attracting the interest of several well-known European clubs.
Coveted by many European clubs, and not least, Mohamed-Ali Cho will also be interested in the Olympique de Marseille. According to information released by Foot Mercato on Tuesday, the Marseille club may have expedited this file. President Pablo Longoria will meet with a team of young strikers from the SCO Angers.

Liverpool, Chelsea and Real were monitoring the matter
Launched into the professional world by Stephen Moulin in August 2020 at the age of only 16 years and 7 months, Mohamed-Ali Cho, 18, now has 46 games with the Anguine club. He has scored twice in his 26 Ligue 1 appearances this season.
A French international U19, Cho is one of the most highly rated youth in the market. In late January, RMC Sport revealed that Leicester and Frankfurt had activated themselves to attempt a transfer in the final days of the winter transfer window. The SCO leaders, however, did not receive any concrete offers, while the player’s contract expires in June 2023.
Steps were also taken by RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Atlético de Madrid. Also, according to information received from RMC Sport, Chelsea, Liverpool and Real Madrid were also keeping an eye on the file. That’s enough for Angers to expect record sales, more than the 25 million euros received when Jeff Rein-Adelaide moved to Olympique Lyonnais in 2020.
