Caykur Rizespor are primed to land Algerian duo Karim Ziani and Madgid Bougherra from French clubs.

Ziani (pictured) currently plays for Lorient, while Bougherra is on the books of another Ligue 2 side in Gueugnon.

Turkish outfit Caykur have set up deals for the duo and they hope to complete the twin capture in the next 24 hours.

"If nothing goes wrong we'll be signing the contract tonight," said Caykur director Orhan Istif.

Midfielder Ziani joined Lorient last summer from Troyes and has played in the French top flight.

Bougherra is a steady figure in the Gueugnon defence and has spent the past three seasons at Stade du Roudourou.
