why Lorient is pushing Terem Moffi to OM

It is a rather unexpected file which will punctuate the last week of the transfer window. That of Terem Moffi, the Nigerian striker of the Football Club of Lorient. For long weeks, OGC Nice has been courting him and seemed determined to take out the checkbook to secure his services. Except that the Lorient president, Loïc Féry, hopes 30 million euros to let go.

So far, the deal is clear: Nice sends 30 million and Moffi is released from the Hakes. Yes, but here it is, everything is not so simple, as you can imagine.

Late on Tuesday evening, the two clubs had agreed and all that was needed was the player’s approval to complete the operation. Agreement which is still lacking at the time these lines are published.

Two advantages for Lorient

Indeed, the Hakes would prefer to see their player arrive at the residents of the Orange Vélodrome. Because, at first, Régis Le Bris would recover his replacement: Bamba Dieng. The Senegalese has been followed by the Bretons since last summer and should have joined them if Nice had not intervened at the last moment.

In addition, it would allow a hell of an economic maneuver. As part of the arrival of Terem Moffi in Lorient, the Bretons had to agree to pay 10% of the player’s future transfer to Kortrijk, his former club. By inflating the estimate of Bamba Dieng (around 10 million euros) and slightly lowering the price of Moffi, the Lorientais would, mechanically, give less money to the Belgians. But so far, Moffi has still not decided whether he will join OM or not…
