Nantes goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic is being linked with a January switch to Hertha Berlin.
The Serbian international is on his way out of La Beaujoire-Louis-Fonteneau after a disastrous spell culminated in Fabien Barthez coming out of retirement to fill the problematic goalkeeping spot.
According to reports in France, Hertha are in pole position to snap him up and reunite him with former team-mate Marko Pantelic.
Meanwhile, Nantes have confirmed their interest in signing Auxerre ace Luigi Pieroni.
Pieroni has been linked with a host of clubs following Auxerre's admission that they are willing to let the Belgium international leave.
"He is one of our priorities," Nantes director of sports Japhet NDoram told Ouest-France.
