The transfer window for French clubs closes on Thursday, September 1 at 11pm. We’re in the final week, that’s all the craziness. Yesterday, a lot of new information was leaked from ASSE. Here’s the point five days from the closing of the endless summer transfer window.
Two players arrived from Lorient
The Saint-Etienne board must register two signatures today. Club-trained defender Léo Pétrot will return to the club after two seasons at Andrézieux and one at Lorient in L1. The player must commit for 3 seasons. He does not come alone because his teammate Thomas Monconduit, the 31-year-old midfielder will also sign for 3 seasons. These are the 9th and 10th reinforcements of the summer transfer window from Saint-Etienne. According to information from Mohamed Toubache-Ter, the transfer fee for both players is around one million euros. Their signature is expected to be readily available for the match against Bastia on Tuesday night.
Following information from@ArnaudHuchetI asked where it was about Monconduit and Pétrot.

A plan A and a plan B of attack
According to information from Progrès, the club has defined its field of action for the recruitment of the striker. Plan A is called Irvin Cardona. The 25-year-old from Brest has 2 offers: AS Saint-Etienne and Strasbourg. However, the race will only sign him once one of its attackers (Ajorque or Diallo) leaves. Without a move, the club does not want an additional player in the attacking sector. If this track fails, plan B is called Adrian Grbic. We reveal it to you exclusively on our sign, the Austrian striker is followed by ASSE and can wear the green tunic. The final hours of this transfer window promise to be crucial.
The jackpot with Fofana
The club-trained defender will join Chelsea. According to information from the team:Leicester and Chelsea have reached an agreement for the transfer of Wesley Fofana for an estimated fee of 82.5 million euros. If bonuses are reached, the Frenchman will become the most expensive defender in history ahead of Harry Maguire (90 M€).” This sale will bring nearly 10 million euros for ASSE. In fact, the Saint-Etienne club set a clause during the sale. The club receives 20% of the capital gain of the transfer. The player is sold for almost 40 million euros in the summer of 2021. The 10M will not be affected at once but in proportion to the different transfer payment deadlines. An amount that should open prospects for recruitment the striker!

Madhi Camara wants to give a farewell message to his training club and club that he occupied for 9 years. Here it is:
“It is with great emotion that I announce the end of my green adventure after 9 years in this mythical club. It’s time for me to thank you: all my teammates, the coaches who watched my growth, the club employees, the medical team and of course the supporters! A big thank you to the people who believed in me and who allowed me to fulfill my dream, knowing that wearing this green jersey is a great source of pride for me. I have never cheated and I always give the best of myself, in good and bad times, of course it is a disappointment to leave this negative note and even now I keep these results but I am sure that the club get well thanks to all of you. I will forever be a green supporter and have wonderful memories of this beautiful ALV stadium 💚
