St Étienne considering move for Malang Sarr (Chelsea)

Téléfoot Chaine report that Ligue 1 side St Étienne are seriously considering a loan move for 21-year-old French defender and Chelsea man Malang Sarr.

Les Verts today agreed to sell 19-year-old Wesley Fofana to Leicester City for €40m including bonuses plus a 20% sell-on percentage fee clause.

Sources tell Get French Football News that Sarr is interested in the move, delighted by the possibility of linking up with Claude Puel again, the manager who first gave him his chance at OGC Nice and actually played him in his preferred role of left-sided central defender. ASSE would be open to a 24-month arrangement if that could suit Chelsea.

One to watch in the coming hours.
