Nancy vice-president Nicolas Holveck has revealed that the French side are currently in negotiations with five English clubs for highly-rated French youngster Massadio Haidara.
The 20-year-old has enjoyed a break-out season in Ligue 1 with Jean Fernandez's side, having started 15 of Nancy's league matches so far.
"Today we are in contact with five English clubs in the first half of the table. We think a deal should be finalised soon," Holveck told Foot RMC.
"Massadio Haidara is our greatest asset. He's been playing in Ligue 1 for two seasons now and would like to play in England."
Of Senegalese descent, Haidara has represented France at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level.
