Nice target Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer

Gianluca Di Marzio reports this afternoon that Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer is Nice’s priority signing for the number one spot, as the club looks to replace Walter Benítez after the Argentine’s departure for PSV Eindhoven.

The Borussia Mönchengladbach man would be joining his compatriot and former manager at the Bundesliga club Lucien Favre, whose return to Les Aiglons was recently made official following the departure of Christophe Galtier for Paris Saint-Germain.

Sommer has been with the German side since 2014, and made 323 appearances to date, with his contract expiring at the end of next season.

Nice have already triggered the permanent option in Polish goalkeeper Marcin Bułka’s loan move from PSG this past season, with the former Chelsea man now expected to stay on as deputy in the position as the club look to sign a number one. 

The Ligue 1 side have also been linked with a move for Kepa Arrizabalaga, with the Spanish goalkeeper falling out of favour at Chelsea amid the emergence of Edouard Mendy. Les Aiglons were interested in potential loan deal, although it was unclear whether Kepa himself was interested in moving to Ligue 1 amid interest from Spain and Italy as well.
