Fast player, lively on his feet and liking to project himself towards the opposing goal, Osman Bukari will bring all his percussion and his technical quality to the Nantes offensive for the coming season.
Bukari was an important cog in the Belgian side Gent's playing system as he represented them in all competitions. He played 33 times for the Buffalos last season and scored four goals as well as providing six assists.
Bukari who started his career with Ghanaian new club Accra Lions was loaned out to Anderlecht before making a permanent move to Slovak side AS Trenčín. He joined Gent last summer from Trenčín after two seasons.
