Nice wants to revive Rayan Aït-Nouri!


We have the impression that he left Ligue 1 a long time ago, but it has only been two seasons since Rayan Aït-Nouri, who was raging on his left side at SCO Angers, crossed the Channel. It must be said that the technique, speed and potential displayed by the Franco-Algerian, then 19 years old, had quickly made him one of the most coveted players on the European scene. And in this little game there, it was Wolverhampton who had won the bet with a loan with an obligatory purchase option of €20 million, well helped then by the involvement of his agent Jorge Mendes in the recruitment of Wolves.

A choice not necessarily wise for the native of Val-de-Fontenay who has suffered since his arrival from the instability of the English club. However, it had started rather well. After a decent first season and interesting playing time, the 2021-22 year was the most successful with 27 matches in all competitions for one goal and 4 assists. But since last summer, nothing has gone right at Wolverhampton, the current last in the Premier League. Bruno Lage fired in favor of Julen Lopetegui, the Spanish technician has so far failed to put the English club back in place.

Aït-Nouri is ready to leave Wolves

And one of the players who suffered the most from the arrival of the former Sevilla FC coach is obviously Rayan Aït-Nouri. As he entered the squad’s rotation until November, he was clearly sidelined by Lopetegui. And it’s not his goal scored against Gillingham in the Carabao Cup three days ago 10 minutes after coming on that will change the situation, especially since Wolves would like to recruit another left-back in the person of Marcos Acuna , World champion with Argentina in Qatar and who is a former player of… Julen Lopetegui at Sevilla FC.

The horizon could therefore be blocked for Ait-Nouri. A situation impossible to hold for the latter who is at the gates of the Algerian team as the coach of the Fennecs, Djamel Belmadi, mentioned again a little while ago at a press conference. A departure would therefore be the best solution. According to our information, a club is ready to revive the future Algerian international, it is OGC Nice. The Riviera club, which has not been able to do so with its left wingers for quite some time, is ready to send the very disappointing Joe Bryan back to Fulham.

Florent Ghisolfi, who arrived in the Riviera city a few weeks ago from RC Lens, immediately identified the shortcomings of this position, especially since Melvin Bard appears more like a substitute than a real potential holder. The arrival of Rayan Aït-Nouri could therefore be appropriate, especially since the other priority in this position, Fabiano Parisi, is moving further and further away from the Côte d’Azur. It remains to know the terms and conditions of this transfer. Knowing the finances of the Nice club, this would not be a problem, and Wolverhampton should not block the player.
