Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City are reportedly following Valenciennes midfielder Thomas Dossevi.
The Togo international is being allowed to explore a move away from Valenciennes and could head to England before the transfer window closes.
Championship sides QPR and Bristol City, as well as an unnamed Premier League club, are all keen on Dossevi, according to L'Equipe.
The 28-year-old is looking to secure a switch in the next few weeks after holding talks with Valenciennes coach Antoine Koumbouare.
"It went off smoothly with coach Antoine Koumbouare and the club," Dossevi said.
"If I don't leave, I will be back with the group in early September."
