Nantes manager Elie Baup has revealed his interest in West Ham United midfielder Julien Faubert.
France international Faubert recently admitted that he is open to a return to his homeland in the January transfer window, after stressing his need to play regularly.
And Baup has confirmed Faubert is among a number of targets, as he looks to rework his squad for the second half of the Ligue 1 campaign.
He told L'Equipe: "We can improve in attack. There are names rumoured and clubs like Bordeaux and Nancy want to sell or loan players.
"Bordeaux's Gabriel Obertan, why not? There are Nancy's Marc-Antoine Fortune and Issiar Dia too. And why not Julien Faubert?
"At first, we have to work to reduce the group, otherwise I will be forced to work a different way. I will ask to find solutions."
