France Football understand that Nantes are doubling up their efforts to find a replacement for Emiliano Sala, who has departed for Cardiff City.
The first individual they are looking at aside from Marseille striker Valère Germain is Benfica’s 27-year-old striker Facundo Ferreyra. The Portuguese side want €6m in order to part with the Argentine forward – Nice are also looking at him.
Two other individuals that contact has been initiated with are Andrés Vombergar (NK Olimpija Ljubljana) – the 24-year-old has scored 10 goals in 16 matches so far this season in Slovenia.
Romanian international forward George Țucudean is the other – the 27-year-old currently plies his trade with CFR Cluj and has scored 9 goals in 15 games in Romania so far this campaign.
