On the shelves of ASSE last summer, a midfielder from Valenciennes could discover an exotic championship this winter.
Now 18th in Ligue 2, Saint-Étienne intends to continue its rise in the standings. ASSE is relying on new reinforcements to get out of the red zone definitively and thus ensure its maintenance. The Loire club has already completed five signings since the start of the winter transfer window. Recruiting a new goalkeeper was Sainté’s priority this winter. They have a new goalkeeper since the transfer of Gautier Larsonneur. The doorman first loaned to Valenciennes by Stade Brestois is the new number 1 at the post at the Greens. Before the signing of Larsonneur, Loïc Perrin and his teams targeted a midfielder from the VAFC to strengthen the workforce of Laurent Batlles. But this one would be close to discovering an exotic championship.
