Nigeria forward Moses Simon is set to make his 30th Ligue 1 start for FC Nantes who visit Losc Lille in a matchday-five encounter at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy tonight (Friday).
Moses has so far played 30 league matches for Nantes since joining the French club during the 2019/20 season, starting 29 and playing as a substitute on one occasion.
He is also gunning for his seventh goal overall in the French top-flight, having scored five in 26 games last term while scoring once in four matches this new season.
The 25-year-old would also be very eager to break his goal drought against Lille, having fired blanks in one Ligue 1 appearance against Victor Osimhen’s former club.
Simon won an individual prize after being voted as Nantes’ best player of the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season which wasn’t concluded due to the Coronavirus pandemic breakout.
Simon was initially on a one-year loan deal at Nantes from Levante of Spain before the French top-flight outfit secured his signature on a permanent basis.
The exciting winger was named in the Team of the Decade by Nantes. Fans of the top-tier club participated in an online poll, and gave him a starting berth on the right-wing.
The Super Eagles attacker hit the back of the net on nine occasions while setting up eight other goais in 30 appearances across all competitions last season.
