Goal France report that 21-year-old Sochaux defensive midfielder Jeando Fuchs is in advanced negotiations to join La Liga outfit Deportivo Alavés.
Alavés have been in discussions for the French youth international for several weeks, and lead other interested clubs in the race for the player. Ligue 2 side Sochaux appear to already have a fee agreement in place with the Spanish club.
The Cameroonian international has also been approached by Club Brugge and Hamburg – Fuchs announced on his Instagram yesterday that he was not close to a move to Alaves and was instead fully focused on rescuing Sochaux from relegation.
Although it currently seems more likely that any departure will happen in the summer transfer window, at this stage a January departure cannot be ruled out.
