As reported by RMC, OGC Nice coach Christophe Galtier has denied reports that he is pushing Nice to sign Montpellier captain and midfielder Téji Savanier.
“It’s wrong, very wrong! False!… We’re not at all in the same situation [as with summer signing from Montpellier, Andy Delort]… I didn’t call Téji Savanier, and no one called him for me, as I told Laurent Nicollin [Montpellier president] a few days ago. Regarding the future, obviously the club is working on the squad for next season, knowing that it will be different if there is European competition or not, but I haven’t had yet a meeting on the squad for next season. I even asked Julien [Fournier, Nice director] if I could to stay focused on the end of this season. Obviously the club is working, that’s normal, but in no case have I been asked to talk to players.”
