Turnaround: Adrien Moerman close to AS Monaco

In addition to Elie Okobo, AS Monaco would be on the verge of concluding an agreement with Adrien Moerman after several weeks of negotiations. According to our information, the two parties are closer than ever to reaching an agreement, after having distanced themselves. Rather than attempt the Chinese adventure, the reigning double EuroLeague winner with Anadolu Efes Istanbul should return to France, seven years after his double with Limoges CSP in 2014 and 2015.

Double champion of France with Limoges

French international with 12 selections, the native of Fontenay-aux-Roses (Hauts-de-Seine) had a decisive role in the very good Istanbul season. In EuroLeague, he played 25 minutes on average and shot 8.4 points with 48.6% shooting success, 4.1 rebounds and 5.3 assists for 10.8 rating.

Trained at the Chorale de Roanne, Adrien Moerman launched his career in Orléans before joining SLUC Nancy and attempting his first adventure abroad in Bilbao in 2012-2013. It was surely his time at the Cercle Saint-Pierre between 2014 and 2015 that gave another color to his career. Crowned with a second crown of champion of France, the MVP of Pro A in 2014-2015 engaged with the Turks of Banvit then with Darussafaka Istanbul. He then joined FC Barcelona before starting the beautiful story that we know today with Efes.

Having more referenced JFLs, a strong choice for AS Monaco

Defeated after extra time in match 5 of the Betclic ELITE finals by ASVEL, the Roca Team wanted to quickly densify its bases of Locally Trained Players (JFL). Moreover, only 16% of Monegasque points in the final were scored by JFL, Basket Le Mag report in its summer issue.
Too strong a dependence on foreign players and their sometimes unequal implications on the ASM leads the ASM to straighten the situation. “We are going to come back even hungrier”, said the Ukrainian director general of ASM, Oleksiy Yefimov, in the spans of the Astroballe afterwards. Like Elie Okobo, Adrien Moerman will try to bring the main team back to the EuroLeague playoffs for the second time in a row.
