Lille and Rennes battle for Éric Bauthéac

Rennes and Lille are in contact with OGC Nice winger Éric Bauthéac’s entourage over a possible move, according to France Football.

The outlet claims that Nantes are no longer interested in the player, and that Rennes are edging Lille at the moment because the former side has the finances to do the deal.

Bauthéac’s contract with OGC Nice expires at the end of next season and any deal would likely cost between €1.5m to €2.5m.

Negotiations are ongoing with both of the aforementioned sides, but Lille are hesitating because of a possible deal with Basel for striker Giovanni Sio.
