Algeria winger Adam Ounas is set for a season-long loan spell in the French Ligue 1 after Nice agreed to pay Napoli €2.2 million for the temporary deal, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

The Ligue 1 club also have the option to pay the Partenopei €25 million for a permanent deal, plus 20 per cent of the profit made from his future sale.

Ounas joined Napoli in 2017 and was a member of the Algeria squad that won the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt with a return of three goals and an assist.

Greek giants Olympiacos are in talks with Leicester City over the signing of Algeria international Rachid Ghezzal, according to Sky Sports.

Ghezzal moved to the King Power Stadium from Monaco last summer but has struggled to impress Brendan Rodgers, notching just one goal in 19 Premier League matches during his debut campaign.

Olympiacos are looking to get a deal through before Saturday's transfer deadline in Greece for the 27-year-old, who is yet to play a game for Leicester City this season.

Despite the Rossoneri’s readiness to release Kessie, the Ivory Coast international is demanding a net salary of €6m per year.
