ASSE Mercato : A Gabonese international wants to change air
After a promising start under Pascal Dupraz, the Greens are in turmoil. The Stephanois are again linked to counter-performances. This complicated season would have given a desire to go elsewhere to a striker of the ASSE. Indeed, according to the insider Mohamed Toubache-Ter, Denis Bouanga could leave the Forez. The Gabonese international is followed by Eintracht Frankfurt. The current semi-finalist of the Europa League has already contacted the player. Borussia Monchengladbach has also inquired about his situation.
With a year to go before the end of his contract, the striker of the Greens is wondering about his future and aims to play in the European Cup. He does not want to relive a season in the struggle for survival. The former player of FC Lorient believes that the Bundesliga is a championship that could suit him. Denis Bouanga is back to his best level at the end of the season. His performances could attract the interest of more prestigious clubs. In case of a good offer, he would not be blocked by the management of Sainte.
