Moroccan international central midfielder Mounir Obbadi is on the brink of signing for OGC Nice, the player’s agent has confirmed to Le Parisien’s Florian Fieschi.
Lille have agreed to allow the player to leave the club for free. Obaddi is currently at the African Cup of Nations, but has been seeking to leave Les Dogues after a robbery episode traumatised his family.
His agent, Hervé Marchal, confirmed that talks were at an advanced stage:
“We are in the process of finalising the deal.”
