Baup is looking for more improvement from Les Verts next season, and believes he needs players with experience to help his young side.
Monaco playmaker Marcelo Gallardo, Milan's Vikash Dhorasoo, who is wanted by PSG, and Villarreal man Juan Pablo Sorin are three players at the very top of the list.
"There is Gallardo, but also players like Sorin or Dhorasoo," Baup told But!
"Our team is young. It could be very interesting if an experienced player joins us.
"We will see if we have an opportunity. Anyway we already did the most important thing by keeping everyone together."
Bologna playmaker Mourad Meghni is also a name in the frame for a switch to St Etienne.
The French Under-21 international does not fancy playing in Serie B after Bologna's relegation, and could head to Ligue 1 with Les Verts.
