Although already very active since the opening of the transfer window, the Greens have still not resolved their priority for the winter, namely to recruit a center forward. The priority is called Jean-Philippe Mateta, but this file is complex. At the same time, this arrival could also push two players to the start.

Since the opening of the transfer window, ASSE is the most active club. It must be said that the Greens have an urgent need to strengthen themselves in order to compensate for the many departures to CAN and above all, to fulfill a mission crucial for the survival of the club, namely to ensure the maintenance in Ligue 1 , which is far from being won given the fact that the Forez club is dead last. This is how, as revealed by, Paul Bernardoni and Sada Thioub were loaned by Angers . Two arrivals which follow that of Bakary Sako , who was free of any contract. But the ASSE does not intend to stop there and now wants to recruit a center forward as Pascal Dupraz recently explained: “We want to recruit an attacker with characteristics that must match what I intend to offer. The more we talk about this player, the less he will come to ASSE. I can just tell you that we have it on the phone a lot. It is still inappropriate to say that he will join us ”. It must be said that Wahbi Khazri , who occupies the tip of the Greens striker, is currently playing the CAN with Tunisia.

Everything is revived for the forward position. center

In this perspective, the top priority of ASSE is Jean-Philippe Mateta . A complex case since the former OL striker is currently on loan to Crystal Palace by Mainz and its recent performances have even caught the eye of several clubs including Newcastle and FC Basel . However, there is a tripartite agreement between the two clubs concerned and the ASSE for the loan of Jean-Philippe Mateta . As revealed exclusively by, Crystal Palace is waiting to find a new striker before letting go of Mateta . And it just might be Eddie Nketiah . According to information from the Times, the club coached by Patrick Vieira have entered into discussions with Arsenal for the recruitment of the young English striker whose contract ends next June. If the negotiations are successful, this should allow Jean-Philippe Mateta to join ASSE .

But the Greens are in a hurry and in order not to find themselves without a solution in the event of failure in this case, the Forez club continues to prospect on the market in search of an offensive reinforcement. According to information from Walfoot, the Greens are interested in Julien Ngoy (24 years old) whose contract at KAS Eupen ends next June. The Belgian striker is very popular on the market and seems above all to represent a plan B to Jean-Philippe Mateta . Anyway, ASSE wants to attract a new center-forward, and when this one has landed, this will push at the start Ignacio Ramirez , close to doing his return to Uruguay, but also Jean-Philippe Krasso . According to Le Progrès, the former Epinal striker, who has only started five times this season, is very closely followed in Ligue 2 where Ajaccio , Valenciennes , and Grenoble would be interested in a loan. In other words, things will change in Saint-Etienne by the end of January.
