Olympique Marseille striker Jordan Ayew is expected to seal a loan move to Nice on Tuesday before the French transfer window shuts at midnight.
The 20-year-old has delayed reporting to Ghana's camp to complete his transfer to the Stade Municipal du Ray.
Nice coach Claude Puel has held advanced discussions with the Stade Velodrome outfit.
Ayew is regarded as a back-up striker at Marseille but wants to play a leading role this season.
Marseile have lined up Valenciennes striker Vincent Aboubakar as his replacement.
Jordan has been named in Ghana's 24-man squad to play Malawi at home in a 2013 Nations Cup final round first leg qualifier on Saturday.
