Bordeaux are expected to bring in a number of new faces in the summer.
Bordeaux are expected to bring in a number of new faces when the summer transfer window opens in July.
Les Girondins enjoyed a successful campaign last term, finishing second behind champions Lyon and earning direct qualification for the UEFA Champions League.
Bordeaux officials are keen on a European run next year and are thought to be following several trails.
With the possible departure of either Claude Darcheville or Marouane Chamakh, Les Girondins may turn to Liverpool's young French striker Anthony Le Tallec, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland.
Bayern Munich midfielder Ze Roberto (pictured) is also attracting the interest of the French side after the player's agent was in contact.
A left midfielder is high on the list of priorities but the Brazilian would have to take a pay-cut to move to the Stade Chaban-Delmas.
Rennes star Olivier Monterrubio, Werder Bremen's Johan Micoud, PSG's Edouard Cisse and Auxerre's Benoit Cheyrou have also been linked with Bordeaux.
One player almost certain to move to the Stade Chaban-Delmas is Caen's starlet Ronald Zuber who is very close to agreeing a switch.
