Moffi has been the subject of numerous transfer talks this winter, but he has chosen his next destination 

Super Eagles striker Terem Moffi has chosen a switch to OGC Nice despite offers from Everton, Southampton, West Ham, and Marseille.

Moffi has been the subject of numerous transfer talks this January. And the reason for that is not far-fetched. The Nigerian striker has scored twelve goals in 18 appearances for Lorient.

The former KV Kortrijk man is only behind Kylian Mbappe on the Ligue 1 goalscoring charts.

Soccernet reported earlier that Everton, Southampton, West Ham, Lyon, Nice, and Marseille have reportedly shown interest in the 23-year-old.

However, according to French news outlet L’equippe, Moffi has chosen to move to Nice. Marseille and Lorient already had a deal in place, but Moffi rejected the transfer and chose Nice.

Les Aiglons are in search of attacking options as major point man Andy Delort wants to leave for Nantes. However, they want to conclude Moffi’s deal before they allow Delort to leave the club.

Both teams are yet to agree on a fee, but Lorient are demanding €25million before they sanction the transfer.
