OGC Nice in advanced talks for Sofiane Diop

Foot Mercato report that Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice are in advanced discussions with sworn rivals AS Monaco over the possible signing of 22-year-old versatile attacking talent Sofiane Diop.

Following the loan signing of Nicolas Pépé, Les Aiglons continue to seek to add quality in attacking wide areas, and have resumed discussions with Monaco about a deal for Diop, who is under contract with ASM until June 2026.

The French youth International made 45 appearances last season in all competitions for Monaco, scoring 9 goals and delivering 7 assists. However, since the start of the 2022/23 campaign, he has not been able to feature in Philippe Clement’s starting XI.

Manager Lucien Favre and Sporting Director Iain Moody have had a number of major disagreements over targets this summer, specifically in this sector of the pitch, but appear to converge in their thinking when it comes to Diop.
