Nice striker turns down West Ham move
Forward elects to stay in France
West Ham target Eric Mouloungui has revealed that he is not especially keen on leaving his current club, Nice.
The Gabon international, who was first linked with the Hammers a few weeks ago, has been the subject of an alleged �2milllion bid, which was rejected by the Ligue 1 outfit.
However, it is expected that West Ham will return with an improved bid of around �2.5million, which would test Nice’s resolve to keep hold of the 27 year old, who can play either up front or on the wing.
“I do not want to leave (Nice),” Mouloungui told Nice’s official website.
