Nantes also wants to pursue Gaël Kakuta in Italy

As announced by Ouest-France, FC Nantes has their eye on Gaël Kakuta. There is a real desire from Antoine Kombouaré in search of offensive reinforcements. The Nantes coach has even made it one of his priorities. When asked by the newspaper l’Equipe about the interest in Lensois’ environment, President Waldemar Kita declined to answer by justifying himself: “If you commit to one player, ten clubs come along.”

The Lensois midfielder, out of office since mid-March, wants to leave the north. Italian clubs are also following the situation of the 31-year-old Congolese. If their identities have not been leaked, a Serie A club and an ambitious Serie B team have also expressed keen interest. The player’s agents were spotted in Genoa over the weekend.

Manchester City are sticking with Bernardo Silva’s prize

Bernardo Silva is being courted by Barça, where Xavi has made it his priority in the event of Frenkie De Jong’s departure, and is not being sold by Manchester City. If the English club don’t keep the Portuguese midfielder against his will, he hopes to get almost €100m for his transfer, according to The Athletic website.

A price that hasn’t changed since the start of summer and that could dampen Barça’s enthusiasm until the end of the summer transfer window.

Bouchouari at ASSE, it’s imminent

ASSE quickly registered the arrival of reinforcements. This is Benjamin Bouchouari who would come from SV Roda JC Kerkrade (Netherlands). Bouchouari, a Belgian of Moroccan origin, was voted the Dutch second division side’s greatest hope last season. This 20-year-old midfielder is capable of playing both at No. 8 and in a slightly more attacking register. He is coveted by other French clubs, notably Lens in Ligue 1, but the Greens have an advantage and the player will visit the facilities of the Robert Herbin sports center tonight. ASSE hope to convince the youngster and formalize his signing quickly.


Saint-Etienne is looking for a striker and a goalkeeper in Europe

After signing six French recruits from Ligue 1 or Ligue 2, ASSE is now moving abroad at the end of his transfer window. Alongside Benjamin Bouchouari, who could join the Greens from the Netherlands, Loic Perrin, ASSE’s sporting coordinator, traveled to Hungary last week to oversee a number of profiles. He also recently traveled to Portugal to scout out potential recruits, accompanied by Ilan, former ASSE Brazil striker. The Greens are primarily looking for a striker and a goalkeeper who can back up No.1 Etienne Green.


M’Baye Niang to AJ Auxerre

Gassama, contemplating a future

With just over two weeks to go before the end of the summer transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain are still working on downsizing. On August 9, the capital club also announced the formation of an elite group of five Parisian Titis. Among them was Djeidi Gassama, who was linked with PSG until June 2023 but whose future is yet to be determined. Having shone particularly in the youth league, the 18-year-old forward is aiming for more playing time, which is difficult to give him in a highly competitive squad for the time being. Gassama, scorer in the first friendly of the season, reflects on his future. He could be looking for a way out on loan after extending with Paris. This is the preferred hypothesis today to gain even more experience at the highest level. The player would be pursued by Bundesliga or Ligue 1 teams.


Tanzania’s captain wants to sign for Genk

The 29-year-old striker had already completed a remarkable 4-year spell at Genk between 2016-2020 (76 goals in 191 games) before moving to the Premier League and Aston Villa.
