Nuamah’s Transfer to Olympique Lyonnaise Under Scrutiny

by Oluwatosin Racheal Alabi

L’Équipe reports that the recent acquisition of Ghanaian forward Ernest Nuamah by Ligue 1 giant Olympique Lyonnaise has sparked demand from several French clubs for FIFA to scrutinize the deal

19-year-old Nuamah made his initial move from FC Nordsjaelland to the Belgian team, Molenbeek. Subsequently, he was loaned to Olympique Lyonnaise with an obligatory buy clause.

Eagle Football’s approach of considering Molenbeek as Lyon’s sister club due to its multi-ownership structure has stirred debate among fans and pundits, especially given Nuamah’s hefty €25 million price tag.

Once the obligation to buy clause is activated, Molenbeek is set to recoup the entire €25 million. This amount stands in stark contrast to Molenbeek’s earlier record fee of just €3 million.

Although both Molenbeek’s deal with Nuamah and Lyon’s subsequent transaction received green lights from FIFA and the DNCG respectively, FIFA might dive deeper into the details due to increasing inquiries from other Ligue 1 teams.

Since joining the Groupama Stadium, Nuamah has featured in four games. While yet to net a goal for Les Gones, he made his mark for Ghana’s Black Stars, scoring in AFCON qualifiers against the Central African Republic (CAR). His prowess continued as he contributed to Ghana’s 3-1 victory over Liberia with a goal and assist.

With the spotlight firmly on the deal, it remains to be seen how the investigation will unfold and what consequences, if any, lie ahead for the clubs involved.
