The Senegalese defender spent last season on loan at Istres - who were relegated - and could now be heading for a permanent exit if reports are to be believed.
A fee in the region of é¼1.5 million has been mooted for the 27-year-old, who still has two years remaining on his contract.
Meanwhile, Lens' bid to secure the services of Alou Diarra is no nearer to being realised as they are yet to concur on a fee with Liverpool.
The 23-year-old midfielder has impressed whilst on loan at Stade Felix-Bollaert and has previously expressed a desire to stay in France.
However, speculation in France has intimated that Reds boss Rafa Benitez is considering the option of bringing Diarra back to Anfield for next season.
