After an impressive loan spell, Super Eagles attacker Simon Moses has signed a deal that will see him remain at Nantes for the next four years.
The French top-flight club has pulled off a fantastic five million euros deal for a Nigerian star who is worth much more.
The former Gent winger joins up with Christian Gourcuff’s team of decent performers who helped Nantes finish 13th in the hurriedly concluded Ligue 1 campaign.
But despite being the most prominent goal contributor for the Canaries this term and claiming two of the club’s awards, Simon is not Nantes’ most valuable player.
Soccernet Nigeria, with stats from our friends at transfermarkt, highlights Nantes top seven most valuable stars.
The Nantes player with the highest market value is goalkeeper, Alban Marc Lafont.
On-loan from Fiorentina, the 19-year-old is one of the most-rated teen shot-stoppers in the world.
It is no surprise that Lafont comes so highly rated, having made his Ligue 1 debut aged just 16 years and 310 days in 2015, the youngest goalkeeper to play in the French first division.
Nantes would have to move mountains to sign him permanently from Fiorentina.
Despite representing France at every youth level, Lafont is still eligible to play for Burkina Faso, where he was born.
