With the long absence of Florian Thauvin, the eyes turned to Isaac Lihadji who lives in the same position and was integrated into the pro group at the beginning of the season. But there are several caveats about him. Already, the 17-year-old Olympian is currently injured. The Team precise he suffers from a small sprained anklebut it will soon be handed over. The daily adds that Lihadji "seems a little tender" to claim a place holder and also recalls that he should participate in the U17 World Cup with the Team of France from October 26 to November 17.

Finally, and this is not a detail, Lihadji still has not signed his pro contract with OM. In the program "Comme Jamais" on RMC Sport, André Villas-Boas confirmed that he would like Lihadji to finally sign, but that the club will not go further with the offer. "We made a proposal that we think is acceptable, balanced for the player. We hope he will accept but we can not meet ambitions that are abnormal. Andoni Zubizarreta and the entourage of the player have planned to meet again in the coming weeks to finalize – or not – the operation. "We spoke with his agent, we presented an offer that we consider our best offer.We will see each other after the holidays and I hope to close the file" had launched the sports director of OM in a press conference.
