Valenciennes are reportedly interested in Nice striker Matt Moussilou.
Moussilou has endured a difficult time at Nice since his arrival last summer and has not scored a single goal in the league this season.
He is believed to be ready for a new challenge and has been linked with several clubs, including Auxerre and Spanish trio Levante, Deportivo La Coruna and Celta Vigo.
Ligue 2 side Strasbourg are also keen, but Moussilou wants to stay in the top flight and Valenciennes have now emerged as frontrunners.
However, Nice may decide not to sell Moussilou to a side also battling to avoid relegation.
