After a hectic summer transfer window with 9 arrivals, OGC Nice continues to be active after the transfer window and offers itself a tenth recruit. Indeed, the Gym has formalized the arrival of English midfielder Ross Barkley, before the reception of AS Monaco (from 8:45 p.m., match to follow on our live commentary). After four years played at Chelsea, the Three Lions international arrives at the Gym for free. Presented to the Gym supporters, he will wear the number 11, free since the departure of Amine Gouiri at Stade Rennais. With more than 230 matches played in the Premier League and 33 caps with the English selection, Ross Barkley, 28, will therefore bring his experience to the midfield of Lucien Favre, who will have to juggle between the championship, the Coupe de France and the Europa League Conference.
“Midfielder Ross Barkley (28) arrives free at OGC Nice, after 4 and a half years at Chelsea. He was presented to the Nice public before the derby kicked off. He is the product of what British football can do best: a mixture of talent, technique, aggression, sprinkled with a strong character. At 28, Ross Barkley chose the Gym to pursue his career there. While the summer transfer window ended last Thursday evening, his release from contract allows him to commit today with the Aiglons. Welcome Ross!”can we read in the press release from the Gym.
