Gradel: Attracting interest from a lot of clubs, including Sochaux and Forest

Skysports.com understands that Sochaux have made a bid for Leeds United's in-demand winger Max Gradel, while Nottingham Forest are also keen.

Gradel has attracted the interest of a number of clubs with his performances at Elland Road over the past couple of years.

He will be out of contract with the Yorkshire side next summer and has so far failed to agree an extension.

Leeds are nevertheless determined to get a good price for the 23-year-old and rejected an offer from West Ham for his services earlier in the transfer window.

Gradel also announced on Tuesday that Fulham were eager to bring him in before next week's deadline.

It is now understood that Sochaux, who are trying to qualify for the Europa League, have tabled an offer for the Ivory Coast international.

Forest, who are managed by ex-England boss Steve McClaren, are also believed to be very interested and Championship rivals Leicester are keeping tabs on the situation as well.
