According to Foot Mercato, LA Galaxy’s Samuel Grandsir could be on his way back to France, and potentially back to Ligue 1. The 26-year-old has been approached by Ligue 2 side Le Havre, who sit seven points clear at the top, hoping to achieve promotion this season.
Despite interest from Olympiacos and Ronaldo Nazário’s La Liga side Real Valladolid, the winger is interested in a return to France. Rising through the youth ranks of Troyes to the first team, Grandsir also played at AS Monaco, RC Strasbourg, and Brest. Across 81 appearances in the French top flight, Grandsir registered six goals and seven assists. He moved to LA Galaxy in 2021, where he has scored six goals and provided eight assists across his two seasons in California.
If the conditions are right, he may just find himself back in Ligue 1 with the club from Normandy. If Le Havre’s impressive title push is successful, it will be their first return to France’s highest league since the 2008/09 season.
