According to our information, Gabonese midfielder Mario Lemina (27) will join OGC Nice. A three-year contract awaits the former Olympique de Marseille player.
After the final transfer of Jean-Clair Todibo from FC Barcelona, the arrivals of Calvin Stengs (PSV Eindhoven), Melvin Bard (OL) and Justin Kluivert (AS Rome), OGC Nice intends to continue to strengthen during this summer transfer window. According to our information, the Aiglons are preparing to attract an experienced midfielder who knows Ligue 1 well, having played there in particular during two full seasons at Olympique de Marseille.
A three-year contract awaits him
Mario Lemina has indeed arrived on the Côte d’Azur and is expected to sign a three-year contract with Le Gym. The 27-year-old is looking to bounce back from a complicated season with Fulham, which saw the London club demoted to the Championship.
After going to look for several young recruits, the new coach of the Aiglons Christophe Galtier would thus obtain the services of an experienced man with a big character and a consequent volume of play. An element which was lacking in the Nice workforce and which should allow the Gym to aim higher next season.
