Sochaux are planning to hold talks with Lens midfielder Jerome Leroy.
Leroy spent last season on loan at Beitar Jerusalem, but he has returned to Lens.
Lens are willing to let the experienced playmaker move on and Sochaux are keen to bring him to Stade Bonal.
Sochaux boss Alain Perrin is a big fan of Leroy having worked with him while he was in charge of Marseille.
Sochaux are ready to offer him a long-term deal in a bid to lure him to the club.
