Cameroonian Vincent Aboubakar Says No To Top French Club

The Indomitable Lions striker declined the offer made unto him by Olympique de Marseille.


He is one of the most decisive African center-forwards of the 2022 World Cup. The author of one of the most beautiful goals of the competition against Serbia and a splendid goal from the head against Brazil, Aboubakar Vincent punctured the screen at the World Cup.

Not very surprising for the one who was the top scorer of the last AFCON organized in Cameroon with eight goals in front of players like Sadio Mané, Mohammed Sallah, or Ryad Mahrez. Performances that increased its market value by 5 million euros. But it also allowed him to catch the eye of several European clubs such as AC Milan and more recently Olympique de Marseille.

Except that, as revealed by our colleagues from Kick442, the player trained at Coton Sport de Garoua rejected the OM offer. Something quite curious when we know that the player does not hide his desire to return to Europe.

Around him, it is explained that he was not very motivated by the sporting project of Marseille and wants to find a more competitive club in Central Europe.

With the winter transfer window which opens on January 01, a departure of Vincent Aboubakar from Al Nassr would not be surprising. This a deal that will be fruitful for the Saudi club because Aboubakar’s contract still runs for six months.
