Struggling this season, AS Saint-Étienne is already exploring the transfer market for next season. ASSE is reportedly still eyeing the Maghreb for future reinforcements.
Currently 16th in Ligue 1, AS Saint Etienne will only play maintenance this season. On Wednesday, the Greens lost again at home against RC Lens (2-3). In the hard this season, the Loire club is already preparing for the next exercise. After having explored the Egyptian market where Mostafa Mohamed was hoped for, the Stéphanoise management is now crisscrossing Morocco.
The Moroccan media 360 reveals that the recruiters of Saint-Étienne are currently monitoring two players of Botola Pro (Moroccan D1). Right-back of FUS Rabat, Anas Bach would be on the short-list of the Saint-Etienne scouts.
Moroccan international U23, the 23-year-old side has played all eight games of his team in the league. He has an assist this season. Another profile monitored by AS Saint-Étienne is that of Salaheddine Benyachou, resident of OC Safi. A right winger, the 20-year-old is Botola Pro’s current top scorer with 6 goals in 8 games. The management of ASSE could well be offered an offensive reinforcement in the next transfer window.
Especially since Anthony Modeste, on loan from Cologne, should not be kept. The 32-year-old forward has not been decisive in 6 appearances for the Greens.
In financial difficulty, Sainté should not bleed to sign the two Moroccan nuggets. Anas Bach’s market value is estimated at 350,000 euros on Transfermarkt. The price of Benyachou should not also reach 500,000 euros. MAP source
