Claude Puel Looks To Reunite With French Striker
Thursday, 12th Jan 2017 15:17

Claude Puel is reportably looking to hook up with a striker who he worked with last season at Nice.

Valere Germain spent last season on loan at Nice under Claude Puel playing 38 games and scoring 14 goals in the process and now he could link up with uel again at St Mary's according to French media sources who claim the Saints boss has already been in touch with Germain's parent club Nice.

Germain who will be 27 in April has played 30 times for Monaco this season and netted 9 goals and 4 assists and is valued at around the £6 million mark.

At 5ft 11 he is not a tall striker but fits the bill for the type of attacker that Puel is looking for.

Germain's contract runs out in the summer of 2018 and there is no sign of another one on the table at present and the French side may look to cash in now.

Makes sense only in that 2+2 =4. French manager, French player, + French agent, Manager's former Club; not a difficult rumour to find traction around Fleet Street.

Appears to be a genuine centre forward who holds up the ball and scores goals, which is something we've lacked since last season. Not only is he French but he has Champions League experience and appears to utilise a family member as his agent rather than one of the gold digging parasites. If he's available for the stated price then he could be a decent squad addition. I've also read that he's a hard worker defensively so, as you say Nick, he fits the Puel player profile and there might just be some truth in the rumour. Certainly a better bet than the seriously overpriced Italian reject linked to Saints last week!

Sakho and this bloke in, Fonte out. Good January transfer window.
