The player is expected to commit to the Azurean club for a period of five years. OGC Nice starts its market with the recruitment of this promising 22-year-old Brazilian central defender, who played for Athletico Paranaense after starting at Santos. It was with his second club that he convinced the Nice emissaries the most, especially Carlos Henrique, the former Defender of the Girondins de Bordeaux who became a scout in Brazil for OGC Nice. The transfer, which has yet to be validated, is estimated to be around 8 million euros.
Patrick Vieira is seduced
He also caught the eye of Patrick Vieira, the Nice coach, who told Nice-Matin : “He is a dynamic, fast-paced boy with a good technical mastery and is able to break the lines or bring the extra to the middle. He is an endearing and ambitious boy, who wants to make his hole in Europe. He can play in both a four-way and three-way defense. If all goes well at the medical visit, he will then have to work to progress in the tactical field. »
It will therefore be necessary to count a period of adaptation for the nice recruit, who can count on the presence of his experienced compatriot Dante. The two men are brought in to make the pair in central defence, an area where the Eagles have sometimes struggled last season. The arrival of Robson Bambu foreshadows an interesting mercato for the Azurean club, which should now tackle the recruitment of a starting left-back. Olympique Lyonnais, who seemed interested in the Brazilian, will have to turn to another track…
