Transfer market: Moffi, Nuamah, Dieng, Lamptey, Ekambi… decisive week
Will you go? Bamba Dieng is in the same boat as last summer’s transfer window. The situation for the young Senegalese striker looks almost identical to last summer. However, this time, the outcome may be more positive than it was five years ago. Lorient has agreed to the African championship. According to French media, the Lion has passed his medical exam to the Hakes. OGC Nice was able to make this a reality in September. However, the transfer is currently stalled. Terrem Moffi, a Nigerian striker hailing from Lorient is wanted by Marseille’s leaders. However, the latter prefers the Premier League, where his Burkinabe teammate Dango Ouattara just signed in Bournemouth for 27 million euros. Bamba’s future is dependent on Moffi’s 11 goals in Ligue 1 this season.
Moffi’s future is tied to Bamba’s
Lorient may not be content with bringing in Bamba Dieng if the Nigerian leaves during the transfer window. The Bretons also have their eyes on a promising Ghanaian striker. Ernest NuamHe is also very popular with Marseille. The versatile Nordsjaelland (D1 Denmark), 19-year-old striker is described as a nugget. He has scored five goals and assisted four others in 17 league games this season. Karl Toko Ekambi could be a Cameroonian national if he is not already in Brittany. Bruno Genesio of Rennes, who was acquainted with him in Lyon and even called him by phone, is interested in the winger. The Cameroonian, African champion 2017, is likely to leave Lyon, where his relationship with supporters appears to have reached a point of no returning. However, the French press suggests that he prefers Celta Vigo. Toko Ekambi would love to return to Spain, where he has excelled with Villarreal.
Lyon, Lamptey to forget the Malian Traoré?
Lyon is also interested in an African international who can be used for the winter transfer window. It is not meant to replace Karl Toko Ekambi. Les Gones would like to secure the services Tariq Lamtey, a Ghanaian defender from Brighton. The 22-year old would be able to replace Malo Gusto’s departure, which Chelsea ardently desires. The Lyonnais wanted the Malian Hamari Traoré. But the captain of Eagles of Mali failed to win the Gones.
