Ligue 1 newboys Amiens have set about a bold mission to lure French winger Gaël Kakuta from exile in China, according to L’Équipe.
In consistent contact with Kakuta’s representatives, Amiens have been given hope of signing the Frenchman who is fed up at the age of 26 of his journeyman career.
He wants some form of stability and his current side China Hebei Fortune want to free up another foreign spot in their squad for a potentially bigger name signing.
Talks continue, but Amiens are hopeful, despite having to contend with the fact that Kakuta is currently earning €4m a year net…
If Kakuta can make sacrifices in this regard, Amiens can bring him back to footballing earth.
