Bastia chairman Francois Nicolai has confirmed the club are in financial trouble, but they are still looking to strengthen their squad this month.

The Corsican side are ‚é¼3 million in debt, but despite this Nicolai admits the club will still be looking to invest.

"We may be having some financial trouble, but we can not sell everyone. Actually, we are even looking for reinforcements," he said.

Coach Gerard Gili wants a forward and one name being linked is Hassan Ahamada.

The Nantes winger spent last season on loan at Bastia and he is very much surplus to requirements at Les Canaris.
