Skysports.com understands Bournemouth are set to sign French defender Mathieu Baudry.
The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to England in the past after undergoing a trial at Leeds last season.
Baudry is believed to have impressed during his time at Leeds, but they could not agree a fee with Troyes.
Troyes are resigned to letting the talented central defender leave and new Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury has moved quickly to bring the player to Dean Court.
Baudry is expected to tie up the move to the League One promotion hopefuls before the close of the transfer window.
