Sammy Traore is expected to seal his move to Paris Saint Germain next week after agreeing a three-year deal.
The Mali international has been a long-term transfer target for PSG boss Guy Lacombe and he is set to finally land his man.
Traore is excited at the prospect of moving to Parc Des Princes.
"I am leaving Nice with regret, because I spent four fantastic years there, but Paris is a big and beautiful challenge," Traore told L'Equipe.
"I am from Creteil, and PSG is a club I have always loved. Also I will play in the European Cup there.
"Of course, I will face competition, but I am not afraid."
