The Denmark international is expected to leave The Valley over the summer after the club's relegation from the Premier League.
Olympiakos were initially linked with a bid for Rommedahl, before Rennes' interest was revealed earlier in the week.
Auxerre are set to battle their fellow Ligue 1 club to his capture after their vice-chairman revealed talks are ongoing with the winger.
"We are still in talks with him," Gerard Bourguoin told L'Equipe.
Rennes, meanwhile, are not giving up hope on signing the former PSV Eindhoven man but so far have been unsuccessful in negotiations.
Coach Pierre Dreossi said: "We have not found an agreement with the player yet."
