Toifilou Maoulida has already left the club and with top-scorer Alexander Frei's future in doubt, Rennes need to bolster their ranks.
Nigerian Utaka - who has been chased by Premiership clubs Manchester City, Birmingham and Tottenham, is set to sign a four-year contract at The Stade de la-route-de-Lorient.
Rennes are also said to be interested in Marseille's right winger Fabrice Fiorese.

Toulouse are also believed to be considering mounting a bid.
