Cameroon international Song has recently been linked with a move to Galatasaray while Wolves have been mooted as admirers of Diop.
The Senegal midfielder shot to prominence at the 2002 World Cup and now appears likely to leave Lens during the summer.
Joining the African duo out of the exit door is full back Cyril Rool, who has options to stay in France or head abroad.
Bordeaux are interested in Rool with Martel expecting the trio to secure their departures from Lens in the coming days.
"For the moment, I can say that Rigobert Song and Cyril Rool will play at another club," Martel told Lens' official website.
"The negotiations with Rigo are advanced.
"For Cyril, we have two contacts - in France and abroad. He has shown a desire to leave. He is a player of great quality, for me the best left back in France.
"Bouba Diop will also be transferred abroad."
In addition to Wolves' interest in Diop, Ukrainian side Metalurg Donetsk are believed to be in talks with Lens.
