AS Saint-Etienne : Brest torpedoes a track of Sainté in attack! | ASSE News

In search of offensive reinforcements, ASSE was overtaken this Friday by the Brest Stadium on one of its warm winter trails.

ASSE Mercato: Brest enters the race for a Russian gem

After recruiting promising Martin Satriano on loan from Inter Milan, the Brest Stadium thought of spending a rather quiet winter and taking advantage of it to focus on the deadlines for the second part of the season. It was without counting Olympique Lyonnais, who, on the verge of losing his midfielder Bruno Guimarães, made Romain Faivre his priority in midfield.

Les Gones would even be close to recruiting the talented SB29 player, for a dry transfer estimated at 15 million euros. A terrible disappointment for the Bretons, who saw their best player amputated a few days before the end of the winter transfer window. To remedy this, Stade Brestois would have already targeted the replacement for the French midfielder, and it is an ASSE winter track.

According to journalist Ignazio Genuardi, Brest would have the Russian prodigy in sight Fyodor Shalov, from CSKA Moscow. The 23-year-old attacking midfielder is very popular with Michel Der Zakarian and his staff, who should launch the offensive quickly to enlist him. Only, very popular on the market this winter, Chalov was also in the small papers of AS Saint-Etienne in recent days.

The attacking midfielder, also used as a center forward, was eyed by the Saint-Etienne recruitment cell as revealed two days ago by the media 90 Soccer. Nevertheless, the financial complexity of the file would have recently cooled the ardor of the leaders who have since targeted other avenues.

Saint-Etienne on French-speaking players

The Chalov track having fallen into the water, ASSE recently established new recruitment criteria for this end of the winter transfer window. As revealed The Team this Friday, the Greens have decided to focus henceforth on French-speaking players, which would be customary for the French championship. These requests echo the many failures with foreign attackers. From this would have emerged the names by Gregoire Defrel and Enzo Crivelli.
