Transfer Update:FC Lorient Rejects 5th OGC Nice Bid, Insist On £30 Million For Moffi


French Ligue one side FC Lorient has rejected the 5th bid of rival OGC Nice for Nigeria’s Super Eagles forward Terem Moffi.

The left-footed attacker earlier in the week turned down a move to Olympique Marseille despite Lorient agreeing to the move.

The Moffi saga has lasted almost the entire window. Initially, Nice was rivalled by Premier League clubs West Ham United and Southampton.

However, another interest has waned as reports revealed that the Nigerian striker’s preference was to remain in Ligue 1.

Whilst Moffi has agreed to join Nice, no agreement between the clubs has been reached, despite the offer of €23m.

The Riviera club are now readying a sixth offer, and is confident that it will be closer to the demand €30m Lorient is asking for.

Moffi is hoping that the deal can be concluded before the end of the week.
