ASSE, which had chosen to appoint Pascal Dupraz on its bench instead of Claude Puel, experienced great difficulties during this first part of the season in Ligue 1.

Indeed, according to the information of our colleagues from Walfoot, AS Saint-Etienne would be very interested in the profile of Julien Ngoy (24), who will reach the end of his contract next June with KAS Eupen. Also targeted by MHSC – Montpellier HSC or Schalke 04 and Hertha Berlin, the former Belgian international striker has scored four goals and delivered three assists in 17 games since the start of the season in Belgium.
A very interesting track for ASSE and its trainer Pascal Dupraz. Case to follow therefore for the Greens concerning Julien Ngoy (KAS Eupen), who is currently estimated at €900,000 on the specialized site Transfermarkt six months from the end of his contract…
