Speaking to reporters during a press conference on Thursday, French youth international attacking midfielder Jeff Reine Adélaïde confirmed that Ligue 1 side OGC Nice, who he joined on Monday on loan with an option to buy from Lyon, tried to sign him last summer too.
“They are a club that has been following me for a number of years. Since I was at Arsenal, and last year again but their offers came a little bit late because I made the decision to join Lyon. I think that today is the good moment. The fact that the board have come several times show that they really wanted me. Nice is a very ambitious club that want to be competitive on all fronts.”
