Kenya international Dennis Oliech is a January target of an unnamed Premiership club.
Oliech looks set to leave Nantes when the transfer window reopens next month after failing to hold down a regular first-team place.
Sochaux have been linked with a bid, while Oliech's agent Jean-Christophe Thouvenel has confirmed interest from the Premiership.
"A Premiership club is very interested in Dennis," Thouvenel told Skysports.com.
"We will see in the next few days if they make a move."
