In recent weeks, Olympique de Marseille central defender Samuel Gigot has been the subject of a potential departure during this summer transfer window, with interest in Turkey, notably at Trabzonspor. But on this Thursday, France Info radio denied the rumor of this agreement.

According to the journalist of Radio France, Julien Froment, Samuel Gigot would feel good in his club, at Olympique de Marseille, and would not have found an agreement with the Turkish club Trabzonspor. Above all, for his part, the former Spartak Moscow player would not consider leaving before the end of his contract in June 2025. The arrival of the new OM coach, Roberto De Zerbi, seems to suit the central defender himself. if the strong back will not play in any European Cup next season.

This season, Samuel Gigot participated in 33 matches in all competitions, but did not convince Marseille supporters. His fighting spirit is appreciated within the club, but sometimes that is not enough.

The defender is not comfortable on all levels of play, putting him in great difficulty in certain situations, not necessarily the most complicated. Pablo Longoria had pushed him towards the exit door hoping to pocket an amount of around €10 million, but ultimately the file seemed to fall through.
