As this online portal reported last week, FC Porto want-away forward Vincent Aboubakar has been monitored closely by Saint Etienne officials who consider him ideal replacement for Denis Bouanga, kick442.com can report.
We understand the former Cotonsport of Garoua forward is keen on a return to France, but it may be a good idea to talk his interest with another Club. Sources say Saint Etienne are worried about the player’s salary size and his age.
Saint-Etienne’s boss Claude Puel is looking for ‘cheap’ young talents for the Club, and the €200,000 a week for the 28-year-old erstwhile Valenciennes goal poacher doesn’t meet that condition.
As a result, the Greens have turned their attention elsewhere.
Though the former FC Lorient forward has struggled with his fitness in the last 12 months, restricting him to Cameos under coach Sergeo Conceição, his energetic runs, and movements make many believe he still has much to offer elsewhere.
It has been a difficult 2019-2020 season for the striker as he has made just ten appearances from which he has scored two goals.
In all he has scored 73 goals in 156 league games since arriving Portugal in August 2014.
The Cameroon international with 20 goals in 63 appearance has previously had his first taste of football out of Cameroon in France.
The Yaoundé-born striker spent four years in France from 2010, and scored 32 goals from 119 appearances in the colors of Lorient and Valenciennes.
A switch to Champions League-bound Stade Rennais remains an option, and won’t be bad for the forward, as he seeks to revive his career.
