The Mali international has previously attracted the attention of Premiership trio Fulham, Middlesbrough and Southampton but that interest now appears to have dried up.
The 25-year-old is tipped to leave Ajaccio before the start of the new season following his exploits for the club last term.
Though Bagayoko only scored eight goals, he was an integral figure in helping to keep Ajaccio in Ligue 1.
Now, the bigger fish in France's top flight are seeking to tempt the forward away from Ajaccio, with Marseille having made contact with the club.
Nantes are also prepared to sign Bagayoko but both clubs have slipped behind Rennes in the race for his signature.
Rennes are understood to have held discussions regarding a deal and are looking to clinch the signing of the former Strasbourg attacker.
