In search of good deals for the next summer transfer window, AS Saint-Etienne is following the performance of young central defender Kresimir Krizmanic. But the amounts announced in the press for the Croatian amuse his president at HNK Gorica.
It is no coincidence that Bernard Caïazzo and Roland Romeyer are open to the arrival of a new investor. The two owners of AS Saint-Etienne have only limited means to allow their club to raise their heads. This explains why the Greens are targeting little-known and inexpensive profiles on the transfer market. We know that the resident of Geoffroy-Guichard looks a lot towards Eastern Europe, especially in Croatia where the Saint-Etienne scouts are closely following the performances of Kresimir Krizmanic.
Krizmanic too expensive for ASSE
Information has already leaked to the local press where there are reports of a possible transfer of the central defender of HNK Gorica for a rather low amount. Enough to amuse President Nenad Crnko. ” Kresimir Krizmanic is definitely not for sale until summer 2022, warned the Croatian leader. Two million euros? (Laughs) For that, I can sell Albi Doka or Aleksandar Jovicic. Krizmanic is not for sale now, and when he is, he will likely be sold for a higher amount than Kristijan Lovric (25-year-old winger valued at 5.5 million euros according to Transfermarkt, editor’s note), which will be certainly our record transfer. “
In other words, Kresimir Krizmanic will cost far too much for AS Saint-Etienne who, decidedly, has a knack for astonishing the clubs of his targets in the transfer market. Recall that Roland Romeyer annoyed the Zamalek when he appeared on an Egyptian television channel to denounce the greediness of his interlocutors. As a result, the deal collapsed and striker Mostafa Mohamed, determined to join the Greens, finally landed in Galatasaray.
