Bordeaux defender David Jemmali has emerged as a possible target for Premiership new-boys Wigan.
Manager Paul Jewell concedes he must make several signings before the season kicks-off next weekend if his club are to have any chance of avoiding an immediate return to The Championship.
Bordeaux have been recent regulars in Europe and consistently challenged for the French Championnat - and 30-year-old Jemmali would bring considerable experience to The JJB Stadium.
The former Cannes full back is also being tracked by Real Betis and they may have first refusal. Although Jewell is interested, he is thought to have more pressing transfer targets.
Wigan host Chelsea on Sunday in their Premiership curtain-raiser and will have to buy well to rival Jose Mourinho's expensively assembled squad.
