Terem Moffi is in contention for Ligue 1 Player of the Month for September, Waploaded reports.
The striker will battle his OGC Nice teammate Marcin Bulkan and Brest’s Marco Bizot for the award.
The duo of Bulkan and Bizot are goalkeepers.
Moffi was in fine form for Nice in the month, registering three goals and one assist in three league appearances for Les Aiglons.
The 23-year-old is gradually finding his feet in the French top flight after firing blanks in the opening three games of the season.
John Utaka, Vincent Enyeama and Victor Osimhen are the other Nigerians who have won the award in the past.
