Speaking to Le Progrès, St Étienne co-president Roland Romeyer provided an update on the club’s attempts to sign Egyptian striker Mostafa Mohamed from Zamalek.
“Mostafa wants to come. He said that to his agent and his brother. We want him to come. We need him. We made this last offer so that he could be with us in 24 or 48 hours or else we will move on. The transfer window moves forward.”
ASSE’s latest offer is for $5m for the 23-year-old, $3m paid up front, and then $2m in 2022, with up to $3m in bonuses on top, based on performances.
ASSE will look at English, French and German options should a deal for Mohamed fall through.
