Jean-Claude Darcheville and Mohamed Kallon are in demand in the Middle East.Bordeaux striker Jean-Claude Darcheville and Monaco forward Mohamed Kallon are being targeted by clubs in the Middle East.
The region has become a lucrative area for established names to play football and Darcheville and Kallon could be the next two to head in that direction.
Former Nottingham Forest front man Darcheville has reportedly agreed on a é¼3.5 million switch to Al-Jazirah, who play in the United Arab Emirates.
Darcheville had been tracked by Turkish trio Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray at the end of last season but may now accept the chance to play for Al Jazirah.
Kallon, who was courted by West Brom earlier in the summer, has Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad on his trail.
But while Al-Ittihad can certainly offer a tempting financial package to Kallon, the 25-year-old may feel it is too early in his career to join the players' paradise in the Middle East.
