Les Canaris coach Serge Le Dizet wants to add a striker and playmaker to his squad when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.
Le Dizet has been a long-term admirer of Oliech and was disappointed the Kenyan forward did not arrive at the club in the summer.
Oliech's current side Al-Arabi rejected a bid from Nantes but it is now believed terms have been agreed for the African to move to France in January.
He could be followed at the club by Santos captain Ricardinho (pictured), who undertook an unsuccessful loan spell with Middlesbrough last year.
Ricardinho has rediscovered his best form with Santos and was linked with Real Madrid back in the summer.
A move to Nantes is a more realistic option and the French club hope to strike a deal to land Ricardinho during the winter.
The midfielder has instructed his agent to seek a move to Spain or France after previously enjoying a stint with Bordeaux.
