Nantes expect striker Marama Vahirua to complete a move to Nice in the near future.
The 24-year-old forward is on the brink of sealing a switch to the Cote d'Azur after finding an agreement with Les Aiglons.
The fee and the contract have not been disclosed although the Tahitian is tipped to pen a three-year deal with his new employers.
"I am happy that this transfer happens at last because I began to lose patience," he told his official website.
"The position was becoming difficult to live through.
"It pleases me to arrive at a club where a lot is expected of me.
"They say that it is never easy for a Nantes attacker to express himself at another club.
"I will prove myself to be the opposite."
