the details of the future transfer of Brahimi from Angers to Nice

Billal Brahimi will quickly engage with OGC Nice during the winter transfer window. According to information from RMC Sport, the Aiglons reached an agreement on Wednesday for the transfer of the 21-year-old attacking midfielder to his club Angers.

OGC Nice may be holding their attacking midfielder. Second in Ligue 1 after 22 games this season, the Riviera club does not lack ambition during the winter transfer window. Angevin Billal Brahimi is close to joining the team coached by Christophe Galtier and signing a three-year contract there until 2025. The player must still play with Angers this Wednesday evening against Saint-Etienne before signing. engage with the people of Nice.

A great deal for the SCO

In search of cash during the transfer window, Angers will thus carry out a great financial transaction by signing a capital gain of several million euros with the sale of Billal Brahimi. A nice move for a player who appeared only eight times this season in L1. If he did not score a single goal in the top flight, the attacking midfielder delivered two assists and shone in terms of his technical qualities and his vision of the game.

Still in the sights of the DNCG, which confirmed at the end of November the supervision of its payroll, the SCO could continue its degreasing operation this winter. Before finalizing the departure of Billal Brahimi to Nice, the Angevin club has already loaned Paul Bernardoni and Sada Thioub to Saint-Etienne during the month of January.

A doubt about the feasibility of the file

The future of Mohamed-Ali Cho also remains in suspense. Very promising, the 18-year-old striker has no shortage of suitors and the last days of the transfer window promise to be hectic for him and Angers. While the transfer of Billal Brahimi to Nice is on track, Angers are still open to a sale of Mohamed-Ali Cho, on the condition of loaning the striker until the end of the season.

While interested clubs have been patient so far, Leicester and Frankfurt have advanced their pawns in recent days. The two clubs have contacted the Angevin leaders, without making any concrete offer for the moment.

However, there is still some doubt about the feasibility of the dossier. And for good reason: if he signs in Nice, Brahimi will have evolved in three clubs over the same sports season. Reims first then Angers, which he joined in September, then probably Nice in the hours to come. Can you have belonged to three clubs in the same season? According to Article 208 of the Professional Football League regulations, a player can be “registered” with three clubs but cannot play for more than two clubs.

However, Brahimi did not come into play in L1 with Stade de Reims last summer (two benches without coming into play), but nevertheless participated in pre-season friendly matches. This is where the crux of the (legal) problem lies. Can a friendly meeting be considered “official”? If this were the case, Billal Brahimi could sign with Nice but could not play with the Aiglons. The legal department of the LFP should look into this file very quickly.
