Olympique Marseille president Pablo Longoria made attempts for two more Premier League players last month, it has been revealed.

OM signed Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac in a permanent deal in the final days of the January market.

And L'Equipe says Longoria also made attempts for Manchester United defender Eric Bailly and Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe.
