Foot Mercato are reporting that Serie B side Parma are set to make an official offer for SM Caen forward Norman Bassette (18).
Bassette is getting frustrated by his lack of game time this season. The young Belgian striker excelled in the Coupe Gambardella last season, scoring seven goals in five matches, whilst this season, he has eight goals in 10 matches for the U19 side. However, manager Stéphane Moulin still hasn’t been convinced to play the player. He therefore has only four appearances in Ligue 2 this season, amassing just 30 minutes in France’s second division.
Bassette is considered as a fourth-choice striker, behind Alexandre Mendy, Benjamin Jeannot and Samuel Essende. A departure is therefore expected, and Parma are set to soon communicate an offer for the Belgian. If Bassette is to depart this winter, the player prvileges a move to another French team, or back to his native Belgium.
