According to reports from France Football, former Wolfsburg forward Paul-Georges Ntep will be signing for French Ligue 2 side Guingamp in the hours ahead after he completes a medical this Wednesday.
Ntep will be one of the high profile signings in the French Ligue 2 in this summer’s transfer window.
The 27-year-old former Auxerre and Rennes forward has been without a club since terminating his contract with German Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg in February.
Guingamp has been keen on a move for the forward for quite some time now.
He arrived in Guingamp today to complete the routine medical before signing for the Breton club.
With transfer budgets hugely constrained as a result of the outbreak of the Coronavirus, Guingamp see the acquisition of the former Saint-Etienne man as a huge market opportunity.
Guingamp’s new Director of Football Xavier Gravelaine has been hugely influential to see Ntep move to the Roudourou Stadium.
After having a conversation with Ntep to determine how motivated the the former French international is, Gravelaine is convinced Ntep can still get back to his best though he has had very little competitive football lately.
Ntep had a brief loan spell with Kayserispor in Turkey, playing just six games before leaving on mutual consent even before the loan deal came to an end. He has also played just 19 games for Wolfsburg since joining them in 2017.
Guingamp’s coach Sylvain Didot has also been convinced about the possibility of Ntep being a reliable addition to their team.
The duration of the eminent contract has not been revealed. While Ntep’s arrival could be considered a gamble, he is without doubt one of the greatest unfulfilled promises of French football, for Guingamp it’s definitely the first big summer move ahead of next season.
