AS Monaco will make its comeback in the Champions League next August for the first time since 2019. After a convincing exercise, the club from the principality is now seeking to build a team competitive enough to compete with the biggest in Europe. To do this, Thiago Scuro, sports director of the club, is already working.

Over the course of the season, and despite the thunderous first months of OGC Nice, ASM will have established itself as a solid runner-up to PSG. Week after week, we could see the Monegasque locker room internalizing more and more of its coach’s playing principles. With an already particularly qualitative workforce, the ASM will have a role to play in the most prestigious of competitions. But several expected departures will have to be compensated.

The emblematic scorer of the Rocher club, Wissam Ben Yedder will leave Monaco, he who sees his contract expire this summer. Youssouf Fofana also benefits from an exit voucher and could bounce back, particularly with Milan, who have made him their priority. Two major departures which will inevitably leave a significant void in the Monegasque locker room. At the attacking position, several players are being tracked. According to L’Equipe, Georges Mikautadze (FC Metz), Karim Konaté (Salzburg) and Armando Broja (Fulham) would be options to fill the departure of WBY.

In the middle, we also learned last week that the leaders were keen on Zambo Anguissa (Naples), but another player with a different profile and experience would be of great interest to the principality club.

Several sources (Le10Sport, Foot Mercato, L’Equipe) indicate that Thiago Scuro would have set his sights on the young defensive midfielder from Fluminense. (20 years old) The Brazilian leader would have had the opportunity to observe the player when he played for Red Bull Bragantino at the end of 2022.

At the end of his contract in 2026, the defensive midfielder seems ready to take the European step. Very technically comfortable, he is capable of breaking through the opposing lines thanks to his runs and his dribbling quality. Also tracked by OM, he could leave Brazil for around 10m euros.
