🚨 Info Mercato PV: Adrian Grbic followed by the Greens! ⋆ – Football – ASSE

This is undoubtedly the most anticipated position. The Greens are looking for a goalscorer. The tracks leak relatively little although the criteria and the profile sought are known.

Scorer, more than a priority

This is one of the priorities of the Stéphanois transfer window: finding a scorer. A player capable of finishing the team’s offensive actions. The Saint-Etienne board has been prospecting for months and does not want to make a mistake. Tactically, Laurent Batlles wants a technical player who can participate in the construction of actions but also take depth. A player who will have already proven himself with finishing qualities. Not easy to find for Ligue 2. A rare bird all the more difficult to find with relatively limited finances.

After Enzo Crivelli, Ignacio Ramirez, Anthony Modeste, Loïs Diony, and to a lesser extent Robert Beric, the Greens want to find their striker. To show high ambitions this season, you will have to score. Score a lot. Several players are followed very closely. A short-list has been established as often.

Nicolas De Préville tracked

If among this the name of Nicolas De Préville figured, it does not seem to be the priority of the Saint-Etienne board. His versatility and experience could prove invaluable. Not to mention that he is free of any contract. With 5 goals scored with Metz, does he have the ideal profile to animate the tip of the Saint-Etienne attack?

An ex-Clermontese goléador targeted!

Another name comes up more and more often in off. That of Adrian Grbic! According to our information, the Austrian striker is looking for a way out. A real flop for FC Lorient, who had invested 9 million euros for his arrival, the former Clermont striker never won in Brittany. Back from loan at Vitesse Arnhem, the Austrian striker is highly appreciated by the Saint-Etienne board. Under contract until 2025, a solution could be found in loan with option to buy.

The question of salary also arises. According to Le Télégramme, a Breton newspaper, Adrian Grbic is one of the best paid players in the Lorient squad with €130,000 gross per month. In a dead end, the Austrian could make an effort to revive his career. Already followed for several months, will the former Clermont resident be from Saint-Etienne this time?

Whether a solution will be found remains to be seen. The Grbic track is not the only one studied by the leaders of Saint-Etienne. Things could settle down quickly.

“I was left out, they just broke me!”

Disappointed at not having been called up for the Austrian selection during Euro 2021, Adrian Grbic spoke for the APA and fired red balls at FC Lorient and its coach, Christophe Pélissier:

“They told me and my agent at the time: “Don’t panic, don’t stress. We will take Moffi for the wing, you will be our only attacker.” Then when he got there, he played straight up front. I knew something was wrong.I lied at the time and said I was happy because we were in the middle of a fight for retention and I didn’t want to cause any trouble. I was left out, they just broke me all year. It’s the plain truth, and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.”

Anna Konovalova, Austrian football specialist for the site Soccer Radarevoked in 2020 the profile and career of the 26-year-old striker for the 90Min site:

“He was not very consistent when given playing time, and a brilliant game could be followed by a lackluster performance. We clearly saw that he was a great talent during his time at Altach. But he didn’t really break through. He was going back and forth in the starting XI, sometimes picking up minor injuries and often being left out for no reason. His good performances in the national under-21 team didn’t had no effect on his club status.

He is tall, quite physical and fast. He likes to place himself very high on the ground to take depth at the limit of offside. He is naturally gifted in the aerial game. Another of his strengths are free kicks. He’s always stressed that it’s something he’s been working on, and he’s scored some memorable ones.”

Pascal Gastien underlined in 2020 the striker’s state of mind, his capacity for work and his self-sacrifice:

“He is a player with character and ultra-competitive. We see him in training, he is a worker. He is very complete. Technically he is very strong, especially his striking technique which is his biggest asset. But he still has a lot of room for improvement. He’s a boy who has his head on his shoulders, he knows what he wants.”
