Bordeaux look set to turn to two promising youngsters if they fail to land Diogo Rincon.
Bordeaux look set to move for two promising youngsters if their attempts to land Dynamo Kiev's Diogo Rincon fail.
Twenty six-year-old Brazilian Rincon is contracted at the Olympic Stadium until 2010 and so could command a considerable transfer fee.
Les Girondins have expressed an interest in signing the player, but could now be forced to turn their attentions to 19-year-old Amiens starlet Issiar Dia instead.
The Stade Chaban-Delmas outfit are thought to be prepared to pay up to é¼2 million (£1.4 million) for the striker.
Internacional front man Rafael Sobis (pictured) is thought to be another possible target.
The 21-year-old Brazilian could also be brought in to strengthen the squad ahead of the Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League challenges which lie ahead.
