Sochaux's summer signing Boukary Drame is set for a spell out of action after picking up an injury on the opening day of the season.
The full back suffered a serious ankle sprain in the first match of the campaign against his former club Paris St Germain and also damaged his ligaments.
The 22-year-old will undergo some medical examinations but will need at least a month to recover.
Meanwhile, Sochaux are also reportedly keen on offering a four-year contract to Anthony Le Tallec.
Le Tallec had a successful loan spell at Stade Bonal last season and Sochaux are set to propose the deal to the Liverpool striker.
Les Lionceaux are also expected to sign Brazilian Betao.
The Corinthians central defender is set to undergo a medical before agreeing to a four-year deal.
