Nice agrees with Monaco for Sofiane Diop

“We are waiting, but there are several players who should come. I can’t tell you more. But I repeat, I understand that it is not easy. Other clubs, bigger than us, are on the players so it’s hard to compete. If we want to take good players, there is a big rivalry. It’s very hard to find players., complained Lucien Favre, the Nice technician, in recent days. But after a few complicated days, the Aiglons transfer window is finally moving forward. Nicolas Pepe has officially arrived on loan… and it’s not over.

As we told you, the Gym was recently in a very good position to recruit Sofiane Diop, currently playing for AS Monaco. Under contract until June 2026 with the Principality club, the 22-year-old striker was wanted to strengthen Lucien Favre’s attacking sector. Qualified for the group stage of the Europa League Conference, the Riviera club now has arguments to bring him in.

Sofiane Diop, not in Monaco’s plans

And according to the latest information from Nice morning, which we can confirm, the Gym has accelerated negotiations in recent hours and has reached an agreement with Monaco around 20.5 million euros (bonus included) for the versatile ASM striker. A good step forward in the file, even if the club and the player’s entourage have not yet reached an agreement on the salary and the duration of the player’s contract. There are still a few details to settle.

Arrived in 2018 from Rennes, his training club, Sofiane Diop played 105 games (in all competitions) on the Rock, for 18 goals scored and 8 assists delivered. Much appreciated by Niko Kovac, the former Monegasque coach, Sofiane Diop has only been established once this season under the orders of Philippe Clement. He should therefore find playing time under the colors of Nice, looking for a profile like his since the start of the transfer window.
