Terem Moffi is an Aiglon!
OGC Nice are delighted to announce the arrival of Terem Moffi on a loan deal with an obligation to buy from FC Lorient.
The 23-year-old Nigerian international, who has seven caps and two goals for his country, has become an established name in the French top flight with Les Merlus, having joined them in 2020 and made 90 appearances, scoring 35 goals, including 12 this season – the second-highest total in Ligue 1. Before moving to Brittany, Moffi plied his trade for KV Kortrijk in Belgium, following a spell in Lithuania with both FK Kauno Žalgiris and FK Riteriai.
Quick, powerful and a formidable finisher, the Super Eagle is also a man of his word. “We’re delighted that Terem’s determination to sign for OGC Nice, combined with our own, has led to this outcome. The support of our owner was also invaluable,” highlighted club president Jean-Pierre Rivère. “It’s an investment that matches our ambitions.”
“He’s a modern striker”
“When it comes to the ideas that we want to implement and the identity that we want to establish, he’s the ideal striker,” added sporting director Florent Ghisolfi. “Terem is capable of playing with his back to goal and of running in behind. He’s a modern striker, very pacy and very powerful. He has experience, and he fights for the team. He’s capable of making run after run whilst always keeping a cool head inside the box. In Ligue 1, he’s already set the standard. A new milestone awaits him at Nice, where he’ll get to play in Europe for the first time in the spring and will be one of the key men carrying the club’s lofty aims.”
With his contract signed at midday today, Moffi will be at coach Didier Digard’s disposal as of the game away to Marseille at 21:00 CET this Sunday.
