🇹🇳 Tunisia international Wahbi Khazri on his way out of Saint-Etienne

Tunisia international Wahbi Khazri is reportedly on his way out of French side Saint-Etienne after falling out of favour with manager Claude Puel. 

The 29-year-old Tunisian has had a disappointing campaign in the just-ended campaign and understands that he does not feature in Puel's future plans. Consequently, it is understood that he is looking for a club. 

Tunisians media reports that despite Khazri's poor form, he has attracted interests from unnamed Spanish clubs. They also report that he might return to English Premier League where he sent two years at Sunderland.

It seems that Khazri has been forced out of Saint-Etienne by Puel's policy of focusing on young talents. The club will reportedly sanction the sale of the Tunisian skipper, under contract until June 2022, currently valued at £7 million. 

The former France youth international began his career at Bastia, scoring 34 goals in 183 appearances, winning the Championnat National and Ligue 2 in consecutive seasons. After 18 months at Bordeaux, he moved to Sunderland in January 2016, who loaned him to Rennes in 2017–18.
