We thought we were done with the Pogba family for this transfer window.
After months of speculation, Paul, the youngest of the bunch, finally signed for Manchester United from Juventus for a world record £89m.
Now it’s Florentin’s turn.
The AS Saint-Étienne defender is apparently of interest to both Hull City and Sunderland if FootMercato in France are to be believed, but it’s not going to be easy to get him.
The Ligue 1 club aren’t exactly keen about selling the 26-year-old, and while both Premier League sides are interested in him, their separate situations mean a deal might not happen.
Sunderland are only considering the centre-back in case Lamine Koné leaves them before the end of the transfer window, while Hull are apparently waiting for the takeover to be complete before signing more players.
The latter point from FootMercato seems a bit odd considering Mike Phelan’s current club are on the verge of signing David Marshall from Cardiff after the goalkeeper had his medical with the Premier League side on Monday.
This seems like a bit of a long shot from both clubs, but if things get desperate in the closing hours, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see a hefty bid thrown Saint-Étienne’s way to test their resilience.
