Beaten in the derby against Lyon, ASSE – AS Saint-Etienne remains bottom in the standings of this Ligue 1, with only 12 small points taken in 21 games. A very worrying situation for the Greens, who had chosen to appoint Pascal Dupraz instead of Claude Puel in order to carry out their maintenance operation in L1 as well as possible.
This is why the leaders of Saint-Etienne are obviously counting on this winter Mercato to strengthen themselves considerably in all sectors of the game…
After having already got their hands on experienced players like Eliaquim Mangala and Bakary Sako, while validating the arrival of Joris Gnagnon as well as the loans of Paul Bernardoni and Sada Thioub from Angers SCO, ASSE is still waiting to new reinforcements by the end of this transfer market in January.
But while Robert Beric would be very close to making his comeback at AS Saint-Etienne, according to the newspaper The Team, another priority issue for Pascal Dupraz seems to have taken a back seat… even though he was still considered to be on the right track in recent hours!
Indeed, according to information from Turkish journalist Yagiz Sabuncuoglu, ASSE would like to obtain a loan from Marcel Tisserand until the end of the season… but the leaders of Fenerbahçe would have immediately rejected this offer from the Greens, given the absence of a mandatory purchase option on this deal (planned in the event of maintenance in Ligue 1).
