After a convincing season on a collective level, Stade Rennais expects several departures this summer.
The transfer window promises to be agitated in Brittany. 4th in Ligue 1 and directly qualified for the Europa League next season, there is no shortage of suitors for the executives of the Breton team. Martin Terrier or even Bourigeaud are courted. Nayef Aguerd is close to a departure. As you will have understood, Stade Rennais is looking for reinforcements for the coming season.
The first is none other than an attacker. It must be said that the offensive sector of the Breton club is more than uncertain at the dawn of the 2022-2023 financial year which is looming. But the Breton leaders have apparently found their next number 9. According to journalist Fabrice Hawkins, the Breton club would be in pole position to host Arnaud Kalimuendo. The PSG striker flew away for two seasons at RC Lens. Objective: to find playing time. A strategy that has paid off. The player has more than respectable statistics with RC Lens.
He closed the 2020-2021 season with 7 goals and 3 assists in Ligue 1 before scoring 12 goals this season in the elite. Now back in his training club, the player believes in his ability to win in the club of the capital. Asked by SoFoot about the chances of joining the PSG project, here is what he said:
“Yes, I believe so! I know my abilities, I know what I can do. I did my two seasons at Lens, it worked pretty well, we’ll see. It’s not all up to me.”
Despite this desire, there is no doubt that the leaders of PSG would seek this summer to find him definitively a good exit. This is pretty good since Rennes is following the player closely.
Not the only Lensois courted in Brittany
The attacking sector of Stade Rennais is not the only objective to strengthen this summer. Hamari Traoré on the way out, the Breton club would work to find a replacement for him. Recently, according to La Voix du Nord, the name of Jonathan Clauss was associated with the Red and Black. It remains to be seen for how many euros RC Lens would be ready to let go of his right side. The player is under contract until 2023. In addition, the newspaper indicates that the Breton club will have to face competition and not just any competition. Atlético Madrid is also on the case.
