All change at Valenciennes?

Cash-strapped Ligue 2 side Valenciennes might be forced to sell a lot of promising youth talent this window in order to make up for their financial difficulties, according to L’Équipe.

The first player that Valenciennes are reportedly ready to let go of is U19 France international right-back Angelo Fulgini. VA are willing to business at the €0.5m mark, with possible bonuses added on. This season alone, Napoli and Everton have made enquiries about the individual are supposedly continually interested. 

One of VAFCs more established talents and French youth international Opa Nguette is also the subject of intense interest from Portuguese side Benfica. Montpellier also like the player, but are not in a position to make an offer this month. VA value the player at about €2m. 

18 year old defensive midfielder Yanis Hamzaoui is also another talent that could be heading for the door, with Anderlecht and Zenit interested in taking the player on loan with an option to buy. The Belgian side are apparently the player’s preference.

Finally, in what could end up being a fire-sale, VAFC have informed our colleagues at L’Équipe that 17 year old attacker Andy Faustin is available for €0.1m. Crystal Palace have watched the player on previous occasions.
