Premier League, Serie A clubs plot €30m January bid for Moffi
The English Premier League and Italian Serie A clubs are eager to land the signature of Terem Moffi and are already planning to offer 30 million euros for the OGC Nice striker in January.
Global transfer expert Ekrem Konur disclosed this on Tuesday via a post he made on his X (formerly Twitter) about the in-form Nigerian striker, who has been scoring goals aplenty lately.
“Premier League and Italian Serie A clubs are preparing to make an offer of about 30 million euros for OGC Nice’s 24-year-old Nigerian striker Terem Moffi in January,” Konur posted.
Meanwhile, a report surfaced on Monday suggesting that Real Madrid are closely monitoring Moffi as a potential alternative ahead of the summer transfer window in the year 2024.
The report added that Madrid will look towards signing the Nigerian international if their pursuit of Kylian Mbappe encounters obstacles as Paris Saint-Germain might not want to sell him.
Los Blancos have always been long-term admirers of Mbappe, but concerns have arisen over the Frenchman’s contract extension with his French Ligue 1 clubside, PSG.
Moffi, meanwhile, has continued to show himself to be a world-class striker, following his goalscoring heroics to help Nice to a memorable 3-2 win over PSG recently.
He continued his impressive run against PSG on as he contributed to all the three goals by scoring a brace and weighing in with one other assist in the French Ligue 1 encounter.
The Nigerian striker took his tally to three goals for the season and has four career goals against PSG, his favourite Ligue 1 opponents and has seven goal contributions in his last seven games.
Nice coach, Francesco Farioli said Moffi is a very useful player for the French club while also saying he believes so much in the Nigerian, even as Sunday Oliseh has also praised his fellow compatriot.
