Nantes and Valenciennes are set to battle it out for the services of Auxerre striker Luigi Pieroni.
The Belgium ace is expected to depart the Stade Abbe-Deschamps during the January transfer window.
Despite having 18 months remaining on his contract at Auxerre, coach Jean Fernandez is open to the 26-year-old's exit.
Everton were interested in summer, while Bordeaux have also been in contact.
