Bordeaux, Rennes and a surprising Italian track
Four years after his arrival from AS Monaco for eight million euros, Valère Germain is therefore looking for a new base. Announced on the side of Nantes towards the end of the last summer transfer window, the striker would have several contenders for the post-OM.
In France, in addition to the Canaries who would keep an eye on him, Bordeaux and Rennes would follow him according to the daily. But the odds of the former Niçois and Monegasque would also be high in Serie A. The two clubs of Genoa, Sampdoria and Genoa, would think of signing a nice blow in recruiting for free.
More surprisingly, AC Milan would also have taken information on his situation. Ditto for the Everton club. But both the Rossoneri and Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees would see Valère Germain as an additional player and would not have really thought about him. By the end of his contract in Marseille, the striker will still try to increase his record (3 goals in 32 games this season) in order to convince the clubs interested in his profile.
