L’Équipe report this morning that Nantes President Waldemar Kita is continuing his efforts to push Argentine target man Emiliano Sala to move to Premier League side Cardiff City this month.
Sala has 12 Ligue 1 goals this season and the two clubs have reached a £20m fee agreement for the player, including bonuses.
Manager Vahid Halilhodzic wants to keep the player, but Kita is trying to convince the 28-year-old to exit Les Canaris, currently under contract 2020, explaining to Sala that the salary offered by the Welsh side is too good to turn town.
Sala, who wants to join a project with a foothold in the European scene, did not want to acknowledge the existence of the offer from Cardiff.
As it stands, no contract extension offer has been made to the player by Nantes.
