FC Lorient are interested in bringing St Étienne striker Nolan Roux down to Ligue 2 with them this summer, according to L’Équipe.
The striker is already being targeted by Metz. A move to Les Grenats would see him remain in Ligue 1 – but he could be content with making the switch to the second division depending on the guarantees that Les Merlus offer him.
ASSE will not stand in Roux’s way if he chooses to leave the club, having already added Dijon striker Lois Diony to their attacking ranks. St Étienne are seeking between €1m and €1.5m in order to sell.
