If ASSE has been very active since the start of this winter transfer window, it is not all rosy for the Greens, however. While Pascal Dupraz scans everywhere for various reinforcements, the Stéphane coach has already encountered several refusals.

For this second part of the season, the goal of ASSE is to stay in Ligue 1. Currently, the Greens are last in the French championship. For Pascal Dupraz , the mission is therefore to reverse the negative spiral and to achieve this, he can count on the efforts of his management during this month of January to offer him some recruits. Although ASSE 's financial situation is far from the best, things are moving in Forez. Indeed, Dupraz can already count on 4 reinforcements for the second part of the season with Joris Gnagnon, Bakary Sako, Paul Bernardoni as well as Sada Thioub , while other recruits could follow soon. The ASSE recruiting has so far been interested, but some obstacles have been encountered.

Sako and Thioub in the absence of Belaïli?

In the offensive sector, Pascal Dupraz will therefore now be able to count on Bakary Sako and Sada Thioub . Precious reinforcements in this month of January when Wahbi Khazri and Denis Bouanga left for CAN. But ASSE had other plans to strengthen in attack. And a very ambitious coup was attempted with Youcef Belaïli , currently free. In vain. Indeed, as explained by his father and agent for Competition, the project presented by the ASSE does not meet the expectations of Belaïli : “Indeed, Saint Etienne is interested in his services. It is a legendary club in France, although it has been on the decline in recent years. The offer was rejected from the outset as Saint Etienne wanted to sign him on a contract for only 6 months with one goal: to save the club from relegation to L2. Once this objective has been reached, your contract will be extended; or conditions that do not suit us “.

The galley of the right-back …

But Youcef Belaïli was not the only failure of Pascal Dupraz during this month of January. At ASSE there are also difficulties in the quest for a right-back. For this, the Greens have looked in particular on the side of PSG with a certain Colin Dagba . Helmed by Achraf Hakimi and even often by Thilo Kehrer , the Frenchman plays little. In Forez, he could have had the opportunity to revive, but that did not interest him. Indeed, as revealed to you on, Dagba has said no to the possibility of joining ASSE . An answer that would have been the same for Sébastien Corchia . Today at FC Nantes , the French right-back has been requested by the Stéphanois according to information from RMC. However, the Kombouaré player would not have followed up on this interest from the Greens.
