ASSE, which is preparing to receive RC Lens this Saturday at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on behalf of the 21st day of Ligue 1, has its eyes above all on this winter Mercato where the leaders of Saint-Etienne intend to achieve great deals. in order to considerably strengthen the workforce of AS Saint-Etienne, in all areas of the game.
Especially since five ASSE players are currently competing in the CAN (African Cup of Nations): Wahbi Khazri, Denis Bouanga, Yvan Neyou, Harold Moukoudi and Saïdou Sow.
But if AS Saint-Etienne has already got their hands on Joris Gnagnon and Bakary Sako, while obtaining the loans of two players from Angers SCO (Paul Bernardoni and Sada Thioub), the Forez club, which has chosen to appoint Pascal Dupraz on his bench instead of Claude Puel, has already suffered several refusals, in particular with Youcef Belaïli and Sébastien Corchia, and is also struggling to concretize his hot files, such as that of Jean-Philippe Mateta (Crystal Palace).
This is why, according to information from Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari, ASSE would be very interested in Khouma Babacar (28), who has just returned to Sassuolo after completing a very conclusive loan for a period of a year and a half in Turkey at Alanyaspor (18 goals scored in 45 Süper Lig games).
Able to evolve in all offensive positions, the Senegalese striker should not be retained by Sassuolo who would like to find him a way out on this winter transfer market. A six-month loan from Khouma Babacar (ex Fiorentina), a golden opportunity to seize for Pascal Dupraz and AS Saint-Etienne?
