Stade Rennais on the trail of a Serie A defender • Actufoot • Pro / amateur football news

If it has a bloated workforce, with 28 players under professional contract, it is indeed a sector in which Stade Rennais lacks strength. With Nayef Aguerd, Loïc Badé and Warmed Omari, the axis of the defense – from which we can legitimately amputate Jérémy Gelin, injured for a good part of the season – finds himself somewhat limited. For this reason, and in view of the upcoming departure of Nayef Aguerd for CAN with Morocco in January 2022, the Breton club have reportedly targeted a player from Hellas Verona to strengthen their rear guard.

Turkish … and German international

The so-called Koray Günter, Turkish international with the U16 then with the German U17 and U19, has been evolving since the start of the season and the start of his loan with the current 13th in Serie A, Hellas Verona. Trained at Borussia Dortmund, the native of Hoxter (Germany) belongs to Genoa, with whom he is under contract until 2023. But he could change club earlier than expected since, according to several sources including Foot Market, the player, who has dual German-Turkish nationality, would be in the sights of Stade Rennais and its sports director, who would consider maintaining contact with his entourage until the winter transfer window.

81 Serie A matches

If the defender arrives in the 81 Serie A matches, the cards could be redistributed within the central defense of the Reds and Blacks. Among the current central defenders, Loïc Badé could be pushed a little further in the hierarchy. The former Lensois, who arrived in Brittany at the beginning of the summer against 20 million euros, does not display the expected return and no longer enters the plans of Bruno Genesio. What if Florian Maurice assured a few days ago that “the central defense (current) is able to meet all deadlines ”, it could be that his words do not find an echo in the choices that the Breton leaders could undertake in the coming months.
