OGC Nice have announced the sale of Lucas Da Cunha (21) to Serie B side Como. The French attacking midfielder made just 11 appearances during his time with Les Aiglons.
Da Cunha came through the ranks at Ligue 1 rivals Stade Rennais and made five appearances for the first team before leaving to join the Riviera club in the summer of 2020 for €1m. He was immediately loaned out to partner club Laussane Sport for the remainder of the season.
Under Christophe Galtier, Da Cunha got his chance, and he featured 11 times under the now Paris Saint-Germain manager, making one assist. However, another loan move followed, this time to Ligue 1 rivals Clermont Foot. After sixth months at Clermont, during which he played 15 matches, scoring twice, he returned to the Allianz Riviera once again.
After failing to feature during the current campaign, Da Cunha has been transferred permanently. He joins second-division Italian side Como, who are currently embroiled in a relegation battle. There, he will join Cesc Fabregas, who left AS Monaco to join Como on a free during the summer.
