French giants Lyon have reached a deal to sign Ghana teenage prodigy Ernest Nuamah from Danish club Nordsjaelland.
The 19-year-old is expected to travel to France to complete his medical to join Lyon in the coming days.
Nuamah had some clubs in Europe like PSG, Tottenham, and Dortmund showing interest but Lyon ended up winning the race to sign him.
An agreement has been reached for the transfer sum while Nuamah has also agreed to his personal terms.
Nordsjaelland will also have a percentage in Nuamah’s future sale from Lyon.
He follows in the great footsteps of the legendary compatriot Michael Essien who played for Lyon before his record move to Chelsea.
The highly-rated youngster scored 15 goals and delivered 4 assists in 34 matches across all competitions last season.
The teenager capped off an impressive 2022-23 season with three individual awards, which are Young Player of the Year, Best Player for Spring (voted by coaches) and Player of the Season (voted by players).
He has already hit the ground running in the 2023-24 season, having netted a hat trick in the opening league game. He was voted best player and best young player of the month of July.
Nuamah made his senior debut last month when he came on as a substitute when Ghana faced Madagascar in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in Antananarivo.
He was also part of the Ghana team at the U23 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco, where he scored one goal in three games.
