We have managed to obtain a full list of the clubs which have at some point this season watched Saint Etienne’s Faouzi Ghoulam.
This list merely shows which clubs have sent representatives to watch Ghoulam and may not necessarily suggest any interest in actually signing the player. First off, who is he?
The 22 year old Algerian can play in virtually every position on the left hand side of the pitch. His professional career knows nothing but Saint Etienne, he has made over 50 appearances since being promoted to the first team in 2010.
Despite having represented France U21’s on just a couple of occasions, he decided to pick Algeria as the country with whom he will perform on the international stage. He recently won his first cap for Algeria in a World Cup qualifier vs Benin.
Ghoulam is a fairly strong and robust left back which would enable him to make the step into a more aggressive league such as Serie A or the Premier League easily. He confirmed and welcomed the interest of other clubs in acquiring his services:
‘There is interest from the Premier League and I welcome that. It means I am doing very well with my current club.’
Here is the full list of clubs who have sent emissaries to watch Ghoulam since the 1st of September 2012:
Monaco, Marseille, Montpellier, Rennes, Toulouse, PSG, Granada, Atletico Madrid, Udinese, Napoli, AS Roma, Fiorentina, QPR, Fulham, West Ham United, Galatasaray.
