As reported by Foot Mercato, Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach are looking to sign relegated Saint-Étienne’s Gabonese forward Denis Bouanga this summer.
The 27-year-old versatile forward’s form has fluctuated wildly over the last few seasons but, despite his club’s slow decline towards the drop, his individual displays improved last season, scoring nine goals and adding six assists before Les Verts’ play-off loss to Auxerre last month.
With just a year left on his deal with ASSE, Bouanga is being monitored by several clubs but Gladbach are very keen to sign the player, say the outlet, and, although nothing has been agreed upon just yet, the club are planning a move soon. They could yet face competition, however, as Lille and OGC Nice have also registered an interest this summer.
In a career that’s encompassed the top three divisions of France football via spells with Saint-Étienne, Nîmes, Lorient, Tours and Strasbourg, the Gabon international has scored 74 times and provided 31 assists in 249 games across all competitions.
