Bordeaux chairman Jean-Louis Triaud claims the club have an agreement in place to take Ludovic Obraniak from Lille.
The Poland international is said to have agreed personal terms and is waiting for a deal to be pushed through.
He is keen to find regular first team football over the second half of the season, giving him the best possible chance of making his country's squad for Euro 2012.
No fee has been agreed as yet with Lille, but the reigning Ligue 1 champions are willing to do business.
Triaud is confident a compromise can be reached, with the player having already expressed his desire to make the move.
"It is progressing well," he told L'Equipe.
"The two parties have agreed terms and we are waiting on the third one, his club."
