Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha could be set for a move to Ligue 1 side Nice, according to talkSPORT

Nice had a successful season in the top flight of French football last year, finishing fourth, meaning that they will compete in the Europa League next season. 

This is a major coup for the side, and something that they can use to lure potential transfer targets to the Stade Municipal du Ray next season. 

And a player that they are hoping to bring in next season is former Manchester United, Everton and Tottenham striker Louis Saha, reports talkSPORT

The veteran Frenchman has just completed a six-month loan spell with Italian side Lazio, where he made only six appearances, and failed to find the net in any of these games. 

And after this disappointment, Saha is looking for a return to his homeland to play regular, first-team football. 

Reports have suggested that there has been slight interest generated in England regarding Saha's services, but it is Nice who look set to offer him a deal that could ensure he stays in France for the remainder of his career. 

Saha began his lucrative career with Metz in 1997 and went on to have a successful career that was mainly situated in England. 

He had spells with Newcastle United, Fulham, Manchester United, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland before heading to Lazio earlier this year. 

Saha made his name at Manchester United, where he made 86 appearances, scoring 28 goals. This form meant he won two league titles, a League Cup and a Champions League title during his stay with United.
