While Jean-Philippe Mateta is still waiting at ASSE, Pascal Dupraz could well turn to another avenue.
Pascal Dupraz has been called on to help, with the mission of avoiding relegation … and the leaders seem to want to give him the means. As we revealed to you exclusively on le10sport.com, Paul Bernardoni and Sada Thioub arrived from SCO Angers and will therefore be the first reinforcements for Dupraz. Others should come, since the new Saint-Etienne coach is looking in particular for an attacker and would have set his sights on Jean-Philippe Mateta , currently on loan from Mainz to Crystal Palace . Time flies and the 24-year-old still does not seem to be getting close to ASSE ! According to our information, Crystal Palace is indeed dragging things and Patrick Vieira absolutely wishes to have a replacement in hand before letting him go. In the meantime, Mateta made the Saint Etienne supporters salivate, with in particular a goal which gave victory to his team against Millwall in FA Cup (1-2), the January 8.
Dupraz and the Greens begin to explore other avenues …
If in England it is announced that Crystal Palace could finally opt for Eddie Nketiah, the Jean-Philippe Mateta fileseems to be considered more and more complicated by the leaders of Saint-Étienne and by Pascal Dupraz. They seem to be already working on other avenues! According to information from Walfoot, ASSE are interested in Julien Ngoy, a 24-year-old striker whose contract with KAS Eupen ends next June. His very versatile profile would be appreciated, but the Belgian would also be followed by Montpellier, the Hertha Berlin , Schalke 04 , Hamburg as well as a big club of MLS.
ASSE made an offer for Khouma Babacar
The bell sound is somewhat different in Italy. According to the information of Gianluigi Longari, the Saint Etienne leaders would be interested in Khouma Babacar, whose loan to Alanyaspor recently ended. The Senegalese returned to Sassuolo but he should not stay there very long, barred by competition from Giacomo Raspadori, from Grégoire Defrel or even of Gianluca Scamacca and Domenico Berardi. His contract ends next June and his club would look for a new club where to place him this winter. TMW confirmed this new lead and even went further, revealing that ASSE has already taken action and notably made an offer to Babacar.
