Metz in negotiations to sign Nicholas Opoku


According to reports from L’Équipe, Ligue 1 outfit FC Metz are in negotiations with Serie A side Udinese over the possible signing of Ghanaian defender Nicholas Opoku.

Opoku played in seven games for Le Zebrette before being loaned out for the second half of the season to relegated Ligue 1 side Amiens SC who had an option to buy the player for €4.5m but following their relegation to Ligue 2 the 22-year-old refused to accept to join the Picardy side permanently.

Metz are looking to bolster their defence with centre-back Mamadou Fofana expected to leave the club and have identified the Ghanaian international as the perfect replacement for the Malian defender.


Opoku will be joining fellow countryman John Boye if the deal is successful, which could lead to a Ghanaian centre-back pairing at Metz next season with John Boye already a key figure at the club.
