Given the chance to train with Nice since the summer, striker Abeiku Quansah will become the latest capture for the Mediterranean club after president Maurice Cohen announced that a deal was imminent today.
The Ghana under-17 striker, who will turn 18 on Sunday, is thought to be a really top prospect and, as such, Nice have elected to sign the player on a five year deal, which should be finalised in the near future.
Quansah first came to Nice’s attention after training with the club last December and was invited to train with the squad during the summer.
Although the player is unlikely to be involved with the first team for quite some time, he will be able to learn from Loïc Rémy (pictured), one of France’s hottest young forwards.
Rémy was injured in the first half of this evening’s match against PSG but, of course, the severity of the injury is not yet known.
Nice have had few problems scoring goals this term, managing 15 in their opening eleven games.
