The Riviera club is working to recruit Jesse Lingard, the Manchester United striker, according to the English press.
We should not expect a winter transfer window agitated, in view of the negative economic impact caused by the health crisis. Clubs then attempt blows, necessarily inexpensively, like OGC Nice.
The Aiglons, already affected by a crisis of results which led this season to the replacement of Patrick Vieira by Adrian Ursea, hope to recruit from a stronghold of the Premier League: Manchester United.
Jesse Lingard appears as a target of Nice recruiters, reports Wednesday Sky Sports. The English striker, whom the Azureans would like to welcome on loan, has long since fallen into the plans of manager Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer and is therefore in lack of play.
Jesse Lingard’s representatives have held initial discussions with Nice over a loan move.

The 28-year-old, 24 caps for the Three Lions, has only appeared three times in the Red Devils jersey this season, never in the Premier League or the Champions League.
Skysports says talks between the two camps have started and are expected to continue, if not intensify, next week.
