Bordeaux look set to move for two promising youngsters if their attempts to land Dynamo Kiev's Diogo Rincon fail.
Twenty six-year-old Brazilian Rincon is contracted at the Olympic Stadium until 2010 and so could command a considerable transfer fee.
Les Girondins have expressed an interest in signing the player, but could now be forced to turn their attentions to 19-year-old Amiens starlet Issiar Dia instead.
The Stade Chaban-Delmas outfit are thought to be prepared to pay up to é¼2 million (£1.4 million) for the striker.
Internacional front man Rafael Sobis (pictured) is thought to be another possible target.
The 21-year-old Brazilian could also be brought in to strengthen the squad ahead of the Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League challenges which lie ahead.
