Multiple media reports in France have it that, a switch from SC Amiens to RC Lens for Gael Kakuta is seemingly off.
Media reports had linked the Congolese forward with a return to newly promoted Racing Lens last week but reports say the club reluctance to splash cash in the market has put off the deal.
Amiens’ President Gaël Bernard Joannin recently revealed that the player will be allowed to leave the club only if his valuation is met.
“Each player has a market value and if some clubs want our players, they will have to make an offer. It is a tripartite contract between the player, the buying club and the transferring club. All parties must have a benefit, no club will take advantage of our situation. If we go down to Ligue 2, we will discuss. If we stay in Ligue 1, there will be no problem keeping Gaël.” Bernard Joannin recently warned.
This comment seems to have put off Lens as we understand the club has decided to sign only free players.
Strasbourg and Saint Etienne have been left in the race for the 28-year-old.
The Kinshasa native scored twice and provided five assists in 24 French Ligue 1 games for Amiens in the just ended season.
