According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Ligue 1 duo Montpellier and Bordeaux are interested in signing defender Abdelhamid El Kaoutari from Palermo.
El Kaoutari was actually a Montpellier player until this summer when he made the move to Serie A. A move, it is fair to say, that has so far failed to work out.
The report claims that MHSC are considering bringing the player back but Get French Football News understands that a move of this nature would be very difficult for Montpellier on a financial level.
Bordeaux are far more likely suitors for the player. Genoa have also been in contact.
