Nice agree €6-7m deal for Young Boys’ Jordan Lotomba

Nice have agreed a fee of between €6m and €7m for Young Boys right-back Jordan Lotomba, according to RMC Sport.

Lotomba, 21, has agreed a five-year deal with Nice and his move from Switzerland is almost done.

It continues Nice’s ambitious mercato after they signed Morgan Schneiderlin, Amine Gouiri, Hassane Kamara, Flavius Daniliuc and Robson Bambu.

Patrick Vieira’s side are also trying to sign Sevilla winger Rony Lopes in what would be their biggest summer transfer.

Lotomba’s arrival continues Nice’s defensive overhaul after they conceded 38 league goals last season.

No other team in Ligue 1’s top eight shipped more goals than Nice and their incomings reflect the need to improve defensively.

A Swiss under-21 international, Lotomba has made 31 appearances for Young Boys this season, contributing three assists.
