Red Hot Super Eagles Striker Agrees Terms With Ligue 1 Side Nice As €18m Transfer Draws Near
The first big transfer involving a Nigerian player in the ongoing January transfer window appears to be on the horizon, OwngoalNigeria.com understands.
Although Nigerian players have been involved in the ongoing window, but none has commanded the type of fee that is said to have been agreed for red hot Terem Moffi who has 11 goals in the French Ligue 1 this season.
L’Équipe are reporting that OGC Nice have had a €15m offer for FC Lorient’s Terem Moffi (23) rejected, and have since returned with an improved bid. Talks between the clubs are ongoing despite interest from teams in the English Premier League.
According to L’Équipe, Southampton and West Ham United have both made opening offers for Moffi, and both of them have been rejected by Les Merlus. On his part Moffi is said to be keen on continuing his development in France instead of moving to England.
Nice have already had a €15m bid rejected, but have returned with an improved offer of €18m in the last few hours. However, Lorient are reportedly looking for €30m for the player that they signed for just €8m from Kotrijk back in 2021.
Despite their high demands they are also mindful of the fact that Moffi will have a year left on his deal after this season making it hard for them not to lower their asking price. Foot Mercato have added that Moffi already has an agreement in place to join Nice. That agreement was reportedly struck on New Year’s Eve.
