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.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
