OGC Nice set to sign Beşiktaş’ Valentin Rosier on loan

According to Foot Mercato, OGC Nice are closing in on the signing of Valentin Rosier (27). The right-back is set to join on loan from Beşiktaş. 

Nice have been looking to strengthen at right-back, but having already heavily invested in bringing Mohamed-Ali Cho to the club earlier in the window, funds are at a premium. Reinforcements are, however, a necessity. Youcef Atal is currently away with the Algerian national team at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), however, having been found guilty of provoking racial hatred following the sharing of an anti-semitic social media post, his future is unlikely to lie at the Allianz Riviera. 

According to Foot Mercato, Les Aiglons are now closing in on the signing of Rosier. The club are in advanced negotiations to bring the former Dijon defender to the club. L’Équipe have specified that it will be a loan deal for Rosier, which will include an option to make the deal permanent for €3m.
