Timothée Kolodziejczak was so close to a West Ham move last summer

In a press conference yesterday, OGC Nice manager Jean Pierre Rivère confirmed that last summer he reached an agreement with an English side to sell Timothée Kolodziejczak worth €8m.

That English side is firmly believed to have been West Ham, but according to the President: “the player and his agent then tried everything to scupper the deal”. In the end Timothée Kolodziejczak joined Sevilla where he has just won the Europa League. Nice only received about €4m for him from the Spanish side, Timothée Kolodziejczak initially wanted to join a Ligue 1 side for €2m.
