AS Saint-Étienne Signs Nathanaël Mbuku on Loan from Augsburg as Third Winter Reinforcement

AS Saint-Étienne recorded its third winter reinforcement on Sunday evening with the signing of Nathanaël Mbuku for the next six months, on loan (without purchase option) from Augsburg.

As for Iespecially Cardona, it is towards Germany and the Augsburg club that AS Saint-Étienne has turned to continue to strengthen its offensive line. As for Cardona here again, it is a player lacking playing time who joins the Greens, Nathanaël Mbuku having made just one appearance this season in the Bundesliga. After Irvin Cardona therefore and the return ofYvann Maçonthis is the third arrival of the winter transfer window.

Nevertheless, Olivier Dall’Oglio is not satisfied. After confirming that it is the injury of Stéphane Diarra which had pushed AS Saint-Étienne to accelerate on the file Nathanael Sheepthe Saint-Etienne coach re-explains that another attacker is expected in Forez, with approximately the same profile, namely a deep attacker and/or capable of hitting: “Yes, things can happen between now and the end of the transfer window. We are still looking for a striker, given that Stephane (Diarra) was injured until the end of the season, we must consider that Nathanaël (Mbuku) replaces him. Afterwards, it will depend on the opportunities that present themselves to us, but we are very attentive.

The profile you are looking for? Either a deep attacker or a percussion attacker capable of destabilizing a defense through dribbling. These are the two profiles that we are looking for, this depth that we lack to be much more effective. Ibra’ (Wadji, who is making his return, editor’s note) will bring us that but if we can recruit a player with this profile too, we will do it.”

It is therefore in attack that the priority at the end of the winter transfer window lies in terms of arrivals. However, it could also move in the other direction, that of departures, where AS Saint-Étienne has already recorded two movements, that of Gaëtan Charbonnier in Bastia and that of Victor Lobry in Guingamp.
