Yahoo Sport report that 21-year-old defensive midfielder Julien Masson is beginning to find his situation at Ligue 2 side Valenciennes untenable.
After rejecting a proposal from Strasbourg for the player in the January window, title-chasing FC Lorient have now offered the amount demanded by VAFC for the player to make a move.
But Valenciennes have rejected the bid as they don’t want to sell to another side in Ligue 2.
Masson wants to make the move as Lorient have designs on next season’s Ligue 2 title. One to watch.
