Mercato : Nice veut passer la vitesse suprieure ! – Football


After a delay in ignition, Nice intends to accelerate its recruitment. As midfielder Alexis Beka Beka arrives, the Gym is moving forward on other issues.

Favre will (finally) get Nice recruits

For Niois fans, the first part of the OGC Nice summer transfer window is not very exciting. Goalkeeper Walter Benitez has joined PSV Eindhoven as a free agent, winger Justin Kluivert has returned to AS Roma and striker Evann Guessand has been loaned to Nantes. On the side of arrivals? Goalkeeper Marcin Bulka, on loan from PSG, has been transferred permanently and young attacking midfielder Rares Ilie has signed from Rapid Bucharest.

It is therefore with only one new face in the locker room that the Aiglons are advancing in their summer preparation. A delay in recruitment which is explained in particular by the change of coach since Lucien Favre does not have the same philosophy of play as his predecessor Christophe Galtier, who left for Paris Saint-Germain just before the start of the pre-season. The Azuren club therefore had to review its plans for its transfer window.

Beka Beka arrives at Schmeichel and yes

Things should change in the next few days, even the next few hours. Just over a week before the resumption of the championship, Nice has decided to speed up its transfer window and will record the signing of Alexis Beka Beka (21). A very interesting rookie, the midfielder from Lokomotiv Moscow is due to commit this Thursday for five years with the OGCN as part of a transfer estimated at 12 million euros, plus 2 million euros in bonuses.

To replace Benitez, the leaders of Niois have targeted Kasper Schmeichel (35 years old). The Danish goalkeeper has agreed to join the Aiglons, but Leicester want to find a replacement for him before formalizing his departure. He will even have the opportunity to join the Gym for free, one year from the end of his contract, because an option allows him to leave the English club now as a free player for training abroad.

An offer for Viti

Another file in progress, but less advanced: Mattia Viti (20 years old). Nice have made an offer for the central defender from Empoli. According to L’Equipe, the amount of this proposal is estimated at 12 million euros, without it being known yet whether it is sufficient to sell the 14th of the last Serie A season. is wanted to support Melvin Bard after the return of Jordan Amavi to Marseille after an inconclusive loan. The name of Parisian Layvin Kurzawa (29) has been circulating for a few days.

Finally, the Nioise management is working on a possible attack. For the time being, no lead really emerges from this position, but several profiles are being studied, such as Marcus Thuram (M’Gladbach), Alassane Pla (M’Gladbach) or even Arnaud Kalimuendo (PSG). The recruitment of an attacking player could compensate for the departure of Kasper Dolberg, for whom the door is open after a disappointing season. On the other hand, Amine Gouiri is not selling. Approaching from Rennes, Nice let it be known that their young striker, under contract until 2024, would not leave this summer.
