Rennes and Nice close to Gaëtan Laborde and Amine Gouiri swap deal

As reported by RMC, OGC Nice and Rennes are edging closer to an agreement over an unusual player trade deal, swapping attacker Amine Gouiri, currently of Nice, for Rennes’ striker Gaëtan Laborde.

Amid frosty relations with his new coach at Nice, Lucien Favre, the 22-year-old Gouiri and his agents have been investigating a move away from the Allianz Riviera before the end of the transfer window with Juventus the latest club to show interest.

In recent hours, however, the two French clubs have come closer to an agreement, say the outlet, with Laborde increasingly open to the idea of joining Nice having been reluctant at first. Nice, meanwhile, are asking for €30m to allow Gouiri to leave the club but Laborde’s inclusion in any deal would lower that figure and the two clubs have reached an agreement in that regard, but there are still a few points to be worked out.

Gouiri is not interested in a move to former club Lyon, however, with the player preferring the prospect of Rennes while also targeting a Premier League move after his agents approached several English clubs last week.
