AS Saint-Etienne : ASSE: De Préville rumor chasing Slimani, it’s brutal | ASSE News

Looking for reinforcement in attack, Saint-Etienne is considering Leicester striker Islam Slimani in the transfer window.

It must be said that the Algerian international had a full season on loan at AS Monaco last year. Returning to Leicester, it has only been used once by Brendan Rodgers since the start of the 2020-2021 Premier League. At the end of his contract at the end of the season, Islam Slimani will not make old bones with the Foxes. In this sense, ASSE inquired into whether it was possible to recover the Algerian against a small transfer fee this winter, or completely free from any contract. But according to the information from Jeunes Footeux, the former ASM scorer is not the only center forward Saint-Etienne has tracked in the transfer window.

A much less prestigious track is also dug in depth by the leaders of Foréziens since the media understands that the situation of Nicolas De Préville alerted Claude Puel. Indeed, the versatile Girondins de Bordeaux striker will also be out of contract at the end of the season. A situation that alerted Saint-Etienne, whose leaders have inquired about the conditions for the arrival of Nicolas De Préville, who, let us remember, has still not scored a goal since the start of the season. The ex-Reims forward has received a contract extension from the Girondins, which he still has not accepted. At the same time, other Ligue 1 clubs have come to the information, such as FC Nantes and OM. It remains to be seen which teams will actually take action, knowing that it is difficult to imagine a team such as Olympique de Marseille seriously considering securing the services of Nicolas De Préville …
