Monaco striker Frederic Nimani is set for a move to the Premier League in the January transfer window, skysports.com understands.
A number of clubs are understood to be tracking the highly-rated forward and are hoping to secure a loan move for the 21-year-old in the New Year.
Birmingham have been linked with the French Under 21 international in the past and a host of other sides have been alerted to his possible availability in January.
Nimani scored seven goals in his first full season for Monaco last term, but he has found his first-team chances limited this year.
The 6ft 3in target man is keen on a move away in search of regular action and the player's agent Willie McKay has confirmed the 21-year-old has set his sights on a switch to England.
"Frederic is hoping to find a new club in January and I believe Monaco are willing to loan him out," McKay told skysports.com.
"There are some clubs interested in him and Frederic wants to move to the UK as he feels his game would be suited to the style of football in the UK."
