Nantes central midfielder, Jordan Veretout has become the subject of a bidding-war between some of the biggest clubs in Europe, with clubs such as Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and Inter Milan, all monitoring the Frenchman's progress.
Capped at Under 21 level for France Veretout has been one of the standout performers in the Nantes team over the last few seasons.
L'Equipe are reporting that Nantes have accepted an offer from an unnamed English club, with Liverpool being the most likely club after Veretout reportedly rejected Spurs as they 'have too many midfielders'.

Liverpool in pole position
Nantes received multiple bids in the past for the midfielder but only Liverpool have matched Nantes's £10.6 million valuation, a valuation which has put off clubs such as Arsenal and Manchester City.
The versatile midfielder, who has played as both an attacking and defensive midfielder, has played 128 league games for Nantes, scoring 14 goals.
But will he be able to adapt to the level of physicality that the Premier League has when compared to Ligue 1, only time will tell.
Liverpool in for defender?
Meanwhile, the Reds are challenging rivals Everton to sign the young Barnsley defender, Mason Holgate.
With interest from Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United, Barnsley have slapped a price tag of £1 million for the young defender but this price tag is unlikely to deter any of the major clubs.
Having spent some time on trial with United, Holgate is believed to be considering his possible options regarding leaving the club he represented 20 times last season in League One.
