Bergessio set for St Etienne deal

PARIS - St Etienne have reached a deal with Argentine club San Lorenzo to buy Argentina striker Gonzalo Bergessio, the Ligue 1 club said on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old was to sign a four-year contract with the 10-times French champions after passing the mandatory medical, St Etienne said on their website.

St Etienne badly need a forward since France striker Bafetimbi Gomis has left them for Ligue 1 rivals Olympique Lyon.
