Coach Gernot Rohr - who has just extended his deal until 2007 - believes that Rennes duo Yoann Bigne and Daniel Meslin will both arrive for a combined fee of around £700,000.
Talks have already been launched to sign Marseille's Jacques Abardonado and keeper Damien Gregorini, and Bakary Diakite looks set to rejoin Nice from Frankfurt when his current contract in Germany expires.
Finally, Romain Pitau is keen to stay on.
"I am very close to agreeing a new two-year-deal," said Pitau.
