Zapping Our Mondial TOP 10: The most profitable transfers in history
Recruited in 2019 near Nîmes, Denis Bouanga arrived in Forez on tiptoe. However, more than two years after his transfer, the Gabonese international has established himself as the top scorer in Saint-Etienne during this period. In total, he has already scored 21 goals and distributed nine assists, all in 81 games. Good statistics for a winger who could look for a more upscale club for next season. Last summer already, several teams came knocking on the door of the Greens, Villarreal, Real Betis … but it is on the side of Olympique de Marseille that the former Crocos could well imagine himself in the years to come as he explained in an interview with the magazine Football.
“Why not play with him one day, at OM …”
“Matteo (Guendouzi) is first and foremost a great player and a real competitor who hates to lose. I obviously followed his career, always happy to see that he managed to play in clubs as prestigious as Arsenal or Hertha Berlin. And I am happy for him that he signs for OM. With Sampaoli, of course, he will get along well because they have the same niaque, the same desire to win all the time. Matteo emerges a lot of energy, and with maturity, he will explode this season in L1. He will flourish there. He told me that he was ready to settle in Marseille, he said, before to open the door to a possible transfer. Why not play with him one day, at OM or elsewhere, because we know each other well, he knows my travels and I know that his quality of pass and his vision of the game would allow me to feast. ” Statements that will not go unnoticed in Forez, which is still under contract until June 2023.
Denis Bouanga, the ASSE striker, does not hesitate to project himself into another club such as Olympique de Marseille (OM) where his friend Matteo Guendouzi is playing. Last summer he was approached by several foreign clubs.
