Mercato Mercato – ASSE: Laurent Batlles is busy settling a sensitive issue

Holder of a Master’s degree in international law, I realized at the end of my university course that it was important to evolve in a field that we appreciate. Overnight, I decided to put an end to the dream of my parents, who saw me as a future lawyer, to live from my passion: sport. Since then, I have covered mercatos and sports news, trying to inform readers as well as possible.

ASSE has decided to recruit a goalkeeper during this winter transfer window. Etienne Green and Matthieu Dreyer do not bring satisfaction to Laurent Batlles, who would have two names in mind to strengthen this position. The Saint-Etienne club is in advanced discussions with Gautier Larsonneur (Valenciennes) and Gauthier Gallon (ESTAC).

The recruitment ofASSE is just getting started. After Gaetan Charbonnier and Dennis Appiah, the Saint-Etienne club is now expecting a central defender, a left-back, but also a goalkeeper. And for good reason, neither Etienne Green, neither Matthew Dreyer do not satisfy Laurent Battles.

ASSE is looking for a goalkeeper

The game against Annecy last December 26 illustrates the passivity and lack of confidence of Matthew Dreyer, propelled number one goalkeeper after the disastrous start to the seasonStephen Green. On the second registered by the southeastern club, Matthew Dreyer is passive and stops his effort well before the ball crosses the line (defeat of theASSE 1-2).

Two tracks, for one place

Behind the scenes, theASSE activates to reinforce the position of goalkeeper. The Saint-Etienne leaders are in advanced discussions with two porters: Gautier Larsonneur (Valenciennes) and Gauthier Gallon (ESTAC) according to information from RMC Sports. One of them should engage with the Greens during this winter transfer window.
