First league top goalscorer Vlatko Stojanovski deservedly made a transfer abroad and not just anywhere but to Ligue 1 side Nîmes.

Finally Stojanovski got out of the level he already passed. A player of his calibеr should not stay too long in the Macedonian top flight and should move abroad. Having just turned 22 in April, it is the perfect timing for a new challenge.
According to MakFudbal, Delchevo born Stojanovski signed a 3-year long contract with a transfer fee of €300.000 that will end up in his now former club Renova. Vlatko the past season scored 18 goals in the 1.MFL appearing in a total of 31 matches and also recorded 5 assists. As a lethal finisher, despite deserving at least a call on the bench, he was constantly ignored by the national team coach. Hopefully, if he proves himself in France, Angelovski will be forced to change his mind.
Nîmes the past season finished 9th in the French top flight an its players scored 57 goals in 38 matches. This summer the French parted ways with three center-forwards in Rachid Alioui, Umut Bozok and Baptiste Guillaume. None of them proved himself as Nîmes’ best goalscorers were midfielders Antonin Bobichon and Renaud Ripart who scored 8 goals each.
Stojanovski is the second reinforcement for the popular Crooks after winger Romain Philippoteaux who came from Auxerre few days ago It won’t be the first adventure abroad for Vlatko since he played for Croatian side Split and Dugopolje as teenager before coming to Renova in the 2018 winter transfer window. He started his career in the youth academy of Metalurg.
