FC Lorient will most likely be forced to sell for almost three times what they bought high-flying Terem Moffi a year ago with Borussia Dortmund already serious suitors.
“He could be sold for 20 million Euros plus now. That will be a good return on investment for Lorient,” a top source familiar with the striker’s transfer told SCORENigeria
A top source informed SCORENigeria will make a financial killing for the young Nigeria striker because there was no buy-out clause inserted on his contract when the French Ligue 1 outfit splashed out eight million Euros to snap him from Belgian club KV Kortrijk.
Moffi has banged 15 goals in all competitions to so far barely keep his coastal club afloat in Ligue 1 with four rounds of matches left to be played this season.
But even if they escape relegation, Lorient will be forced to sell their top star to improve their finances no thanks to the dire effects of Coronavirus Pandemics and the bankruptcy of the Ligue 1 TV rights company.
It has been a most remarkable rags-to-riches story for Mossi, who in January 2020 KV Kortrijk paid a paltry $150,000 to sign him from Lithuania.
In October 2020, he moved to FC Lorient in the French Ligue 1 for a record-breaking eight million Euros and he could again move this summer for even far more money.
