Terem Moffi’s steady progress has reportedly been suggested to be the reason he’s courted by several top clubs in Europe.
The FC Lorient danger man has been linked with a move to La Liga champions Atletico Madrid in recent weeks, among other clubs interested in his services.
His club boss, Christophe Pelissier – obviously delighted there is reported interest in the youngster, conceded that it proves the Merlucciidaes are doing a good job in nurturing players.
“The fact that a player like him is wanted [by other teams] seems logical to me, and is also gratifying for the work that is being done here,” Pelissier said as quoted by Ouest-France.
“We are able to develop very, very high-level players. Terem [Moffi] is already a very high-level player and I think he will get even better with time.”
The 22-year-old played a vital role to help the team get promoted to the French top-tier after scoring 14 goals and providing three assists; which made him finish as the club’s top scorer and he will be looking to match the feat this season if his transfer aspirations don’t surface.
Moffi has already opened his goal account for the 2021-22 French Ligue 1 season with the winning strike in a 1-0 result against Monaco in their last Ligue 1 match.
The attacker stepped forward to convert from the penalty spot in the 31st minute, a lead the hosts held on to for the rest of the match.
