Bordeaux signed Maazou Moussa on a one-year loan from CSKA Moscow with an option to buy.
Niger striker Moussa, 22, is eager to prove himself in France having spent time in Ligue 1 last season on loan with Monaco. "I am looking forward to playing in this good Bordeaux team," Maazou said. "Hopefully I will get my chance."
Kick Off reports that the fee would be €4 million should Bordeaux decide to make the deal permanent.
Bordeaux have been seeking to reinforce their strike-force following Marouane Chamakh's switch to Arsenal this summer. They could also be set to lose Fernando Cavenaghi, who has attracted interest from Sunderland.
