Pedretti has been a long-term target of l'OM, who have twice attempted to entice the gifted schemer to Stade Velodrome.
A bid failed last summer while Sochaux were reluctant to part company with the 23-year-old during January's transfer window.
The midfielder signed a contract keeping him at Sochaux until 2006 late last year but it is understood the club may be prepared to cash in at the end of the season.
Pedretti is believed to have a release clause of é¼3 million in his contract and l'OM are expected to wade in with a bid in the summer.
In-form striker Frau has also caught the eye of l'OM, who have been disappointed with the contributions of Mido and Steve Marlet this season.
L'OM want a foil for the impressive Didier Drogba and Frau has emerged as a viable candidate to pep up the attack.
Frau has scored 15 goals in Ligue 1 this term although l'OM are also assessing the merits of Ajaccio forward Mamadou Bagayoko.
