Skysports.com understands Premier League duo Hull City and Wolves are rivals to sign Nantes midfielder Guirane N'Daw.
The 25-year-old has been linked with Stoke City in the past after impressing in the French Ligue 1 with a struggling Nantes team.
But it is now thought that Hull and newly-promoted Wolves are considering making an offer for the Senegal international.
N'Daw has previously confessed an interest in playing in England, and Nantes' relegation last season could prompt a desire to move.
The former Sochaux player joined Nantes in 2008 and has made 24 appearances for the club, scoring three goals in that time.
