Ezequiel Lavezzi transfer 'is not a subject of discussion' for Nice - Rivere

Nice have denied Ezequiel Lavezzi is their latest transfer target after swooping for Mario Balotelli last summer.

The Ligue 1 leaders sprung one of the surprises of the summer transfer window when they secured the services of Balotelli on a one-year deal.

Lavezzi, who joined Hebei China Fortune from Paris Saint-Germain last February, has been linked to the unlikely Ligue 1 leaders as they reportedly seek to strengthen their position.

Speaking to But Football Club, club president Jean-Pierre Rivere denied the Argentina international would team up with Balotelli at the Allianz Riviera. 

"No," replied Rivere when asked whether his team would pull off another transfer coup. "You're no doubt talking about the rumour that has Ezequiel Lavezzi coming to us.

"We've never talked about this question in the club. I don't know where it has come from or why it persists. For us, Lavezzi is not a subject of discussion.

"There won't be a stunning coup in January. We have a budget, we have to stick to it and not do anything silly."
