The Primera outfit are on the look-out for a new hit-man after Sonny Anderson's recent move to Qatar club Al Rayyan.
They have been linked with Argentina international Luciano Figueroa, but Chamakh has now emerged as their primary target.
The 20-year-old is one of the hottest young talents in the Ligue 1 and has already attracted the interest of Arsenal, Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain.
PSG have been strongly tipped to move for him during the January transfer window and look certain to rival Villarreal for his signature.
The Spaniards have received glowing reports on the youngster who already has five goals to his name in the French league this term.
It is reported The Yellow Submarines have already opened talks with their French counterparts, although - with Bordeaux rumoured to rate him in the é¼10 million bracket - any deal is still some way off.
Chamakh has already caught the eye of another Spanish club as Mallorca made enquiries for him last summer.
