If some teams remain rather calm on this winter transfer window 2023, others seem to want to take advantage of it to revive. This is the case of OGC Nice which, despite attractive financial means, has had a disappointing season so far. After results below expectations, management decided to part ways with Lucien Favre. Since then, OGC Nice has been very active and wants to strengthen itself to move up the rankings (the club is currently 10th). The first sector targeted is the defensive sector. In this sense, the people of Nice should welcome Youssouf Ndayishimiye in the coming hours as we revealed to you. But this is not the only site of the Niçois.

The offensive sector should also move a lot. First in the direction of departures since the Niçois Andy Delort has been pushing for some time to join FC Nantes. The Algerian international has not trained and is going to arm wrestle with his management to force his departure to the Canaries. To replace him, OGC Nice therefore looked for a new striker and targeted Terem Moffi, the number 1 track in front. The Lorient striker absolutely wants to join Nice and the parties are optimistic to conclude this transfer. The player already has an agreement with the Gym, which has now made a new offer of 20 million to Lorient to recruit him.

Contacts with Youssef En-Nesyri

But Florent Ghisolfi is farsighted and works on several tracks in case of failure with Moffi. The Aiglons sports director has drawn up a list of priorities for each position with three, four or five elements per position. According to our indiscretions, this plan B is called Youssef En-Nesyri. The Moroccan international who shone at the 2022 World Cup is on the start side of Seville. Author of 5 small goals with the Sevillian club this season (none in La Liga), the 25-year-old player is a profile that appeals to the management of Nice who could take action if the track leading to the Nigerian striker failed. Contacts have already taken place between the two parties.

If this season, the former striker seems less confident, he has proven in the past that he can be formidable up front. His rating is also quite high on the side of England in particular, where West Ham has already made an offer to recover him this winter. If Sevilla is not closed to the idea of ​​​​selling him to recover cash, the Atlas Lion was not thrilled with the idea of ​​​​joining England. OGC Nice is therefore taking advantage of the situation and could well seduce the international with 57 caps (17 goals). But to accelerate in this file, the track leading to Moffi would have to fail. And that’s not the trend. But Nice is preparing for anything.
