It is the biggest outgoing transfer in the history of Lorient.
Moffi joined Les Merlus from Belgium Pro League outfit, KV Kortrijk for €8m in October 2020.
Lorient wanted him to join Olympique Marseille after they met their valuation of the player but the Nigeria international insisted on a move to the Riviera club.
Moffi scored 12 goals in 20 league appearances for Lorient this season.
Congrats but to say the truth I would have been happier if it was Merseile . We need SE players in competitive clubs to bring out their best
Have made this comment in the past and will make it again. I understand, it is their lives and their careers, but Nigerian players need to show more ambition.
Rejecting a legendary club like Olympic Marseille who are involved in continental competitions season in season out and was very serious in signing you, in favor of a supposedly building team doesn’t strike me as being ambitious.
Unless it is all about the money.
Players from the eastern part of the country prefer money over career. case Study iheanacho and Ademola lookman
LOOKMAN from the EASTERN PART?
Mr Man look man is southwestrn Nigeria ooo.i.He is a yoruba guy ooooo
It is difficult to make a complete sense on this move. Lorent is 6th on the table, Nice is 10th and Marseille is 3rd just two points less than the 2nd position.
Marseille is among the top three most famous French clubs.
The only thing that reminds me of Nice is the smart and tough tackling Onyakachi Apam.
Nothing but best wishes.
Nigerian players lack self-belief… He is small-time club boy… Make una leave am. Im ball sef no impress like that…
@RIR, Lookman is not from the East
This is the best decision for him. Go to where your heart and spirit leads you to. Nice just impressed me by the big effort in getting him. This shows how they rate him. He will explode at Nice. Its an upgrade to Lorient and Nice is loaded with cash. He will be playing with top quality players soon.
Is comparing them is not saying lookman is from the East. But Moffi is not from the East.
If it was money I think dey gave the same . So he knows better.,
I think two factors influenced this move to Nice. The club have a new owner who is willing to splash the cash and fund the club ambitions just like it happened at PSG.He is guaranteed a starting role with less competition and more importantly, He will be earning 250,0000 Euros per week excluding bonuses for the next four and half years. Ette has hammered! He is only 23 years old. He will leave to the premiership at 27 years by this time he is already in his prime.
Where did you get 250k euros per week?…The terms of the deal have not even been released…. Why do you people lie like this?
He just joined them on a 6-month loan deal with mandatory option for a permanent transfer. That is new coming out of France
