Gaëtan Charbonnier wants to move to St Étienne

Paris-Normandie report that 33-year-old attacker Gaëtan Charbonnier has requested to leave Ligue 1 outfit Auxerre for French 2nd division strugglers AS Saint Étienne, and hopes that an agreement will be concluded rapidly. AJA would prefer to wait until they find a replacement.

Charbonnier is considered a Ligue 2 specialist, having contributed to the promotions of Auxerre, Brest and Reims.

A deal was very close for Charbonnier to join Ligue 2 leaders Le Havre instead, but ASSE have struck decisively to sway the player in their favour – they are offering him €100k gross a month, plus a €400k relegation survival bonus.

Charbonnier has made just 6 appearances for Auxerre this season, all of them in a secondary, life-injecting attempting role.

Auxerre will not stand in the player’s way, but want to find a replacement and may struggle to do so in a difficult striker market this January – ASSE will also be expected to submit a strong bid, as the player is still under contract until June 2024.
