L’Equipe has a bumper transfer special in their Tuesday edition, with the French newspaper looking to inject even more oomph into the start of the transfer window.
With late May and early June already feeling like peak August transfer window, the fresh reports and links, old and new, are only going to increase the transfer hype around Ligue 1 right now.
Each French club gets a section of their own and for Nice there’s some Leicester City involvement. Alassane Plea and Jean-Michaël Seri are the main possible exits and the Foxes are said to be a possible ‘track’ for the former.
Along with Leicester, Borussia Monchengladbach and Valencia are also said to be keen on 25 year old attacker Plea. ‘Concrete offers’ have been received at Nice for both players mentioned, but L’Equipe don’t share any further on who they came from or what the value was.
In February, the same French newspaper reported Claude Puel was watching Plea’s development at Nice closely, but there wasn’t any claim of Leicester taking that further at the time.
