Nice consider move for Sevilla winger Rony Lopes

Nice are considering Sevilla winger Rony Lopes as a potential summer signing, France Football reports.

Patrick Vieira is looking for reinforcements on the flanks and is also considering Sassuolo wide man Jeremie Boga and Saint-Etienne star Denis Bouanga.

Both players are costly and in high demand though, and Boga in particular would be very expensive at €25m-plus.

And that has Vieira considering Lopes, 24, who he coached while in charge of Manchester City’s under-21s.

Lopes joined Sevilla from Monaco for €20m last August as part of an exchange that saw Wissam Ben Yedder go the other way.

However, the twice-capped Portugal attacker has struggled for game time, making just five La Liga appearances.

Sevilla’s wing positions are occupied by Lucas Ocampos and Munir El-Haddadi, so a move may be in Lopes’ best interests.

And Nice are considering handing Lopes a platform to relaunch his career on the French Riviera.
