Nantes wants Gaël Kakuta, also followed in Italy
As announced by Ouest-France, FC Nantes is eyeing Gaël Kakuta. There is a real desire from Antoine Kombouaré in search of offensive reinforcement.

The Lensois striker who has not had a tenure since mid-March wants to leave the North. Italian clubs are also following the situation of the 31-year-old Congolese. If their identity has not filtered through, a Serie A club and an ambitious Serie B team have also shown themselves to be very interested. The player’s agents were spotted in Genoa over the weekend.
