Lille enquire for Baptiste Santamaria (Angers)

RMC report that Ligue 1 runners-up Lille have made an enquiry for 24-year-old Angers central midfielder Baptiste Santamaria, as they seek a replacement for Thiago Mendes, who moved to Lyon today officially for €25m.

At the moment, LOSC have not yet made a formal bid for the Frenchman, as it is believed that he is their back-up target if they are unable to convince Rennes to sell them their captain Benjamin André.

Aston Villa and Lazio have also made approaches for Santamaria – Angers have not set an asking price for him, in a deliberate tactic to incite a bidding war.
