Nigeria international Moses Simon is generating buzz in France with Olympique Marseille, OGC Nice, Lyon, and Lille all expressing interest in acquiring him. With his contract expiring in June 2024, Moses is set to become a free agent, making him a prime target for the upcoming transfer window.
According to Foot Mercato, Lyon have reportedly initiated contract talks with Nantes, but a January deal seems unlikely. Aiming for European competition next season, Nante is determined to keep Moses until his contract ends, even with his indifferent response to their lucrative extension offer.
While other clubs circle, Moses prioritizes a move to a bigger team for the next chapter of his career. Nantes, however, are adamant about retaining him for the crucial second half of the season, especially with his Africa Cup of Nations absence looming in January.
The 28-year-old, who arrived at Nantes in 2019, has been a key contributor this season, racking up 3 goals and 5 assists in 15 appearances. His impactful performances, particularly his ability to influence the game from his left flank, solidify his appeal to potential suitors.
With 29 goals and 31 assists in 161 career games for Nantes, Moses’ talent and experience are undeniable. Whether he stays at Nantes until summer or embarks on a new adventure with a French giant, his future promises to be intriguing.
