It has been suggested that the signing of N'Diaye would quell Marseille's interest in Pedretti, but l'OM chairman Christophe Bouchet insists they are still pursuing the French international.
Marseille are keen to sign Pedretti on loan with the option to buy, while Sochaux want a permanent cash deal and Bouchet has revealed he will not be held to ransom for his signature.
"The Sylvain arrival doesn't question the Pedretti one," confirmed Bouchet.
"Alain Perrin (Marseille coach) wanted a very versatile player, so he has him with N'Diaye, a player with a profile and a state of mind he really appreciates.
"But I think he is not in the same style as Benoit. Anyway it is an area on the pitch where we need quality players.
"With Pedretti we know what we want, but Sochaux still estimates our proposition as insufficient. But we won't be lead by our passion."
