Come on loan at OM January 2021, the 24-year-old Spaniard very quickly convinced the Marseille leaders to recruit him. After a long confrontation with Fiorentinathe right side definitely lands on the banks of the Cannebière, in the home stretch of the summer transfer window 2021. The Phocaeans had passed 12 to 13 million euros to secure the services of the club’s current number 29. Finally, his return was more complicated than expected, since Jorge Sampaoli relegated him to the bench, in favor of a Valentin Rongier who has become a right piston in the hybrid system of the Argentine coach. The arrival of coach Igor Tudor could have been redemption sign for Lirola, but the arrival of Clauss has definitively buried his hopes.

The leaders were therefore looking for a way out for the right side and that looks positive since the player is expected in the coming days at a championship resident from Spain pass his medical examination.
