The clubs of Saint-Étienne and Los Angeles confirmed this Friday the transfer of Gabonese international Denis Bouanga. The former player of Lorient and Tours must commit for three and a half years with the Californian club. Leader of the MLS Western Conference, Los Angeles FC has players such as Carlos Vela, Giorgio Chiellini and Gareth Bale in its ranks.
Denis Bouanga will benefit from designated player status, which allows his franchise to exceed the salary cap imposed in the United States. At Saint-Étienne, the 27-year-old striker scored 28 goals and delivered 16 assists in 110 games.
