Ouest-France report this morning that Ligue 1 side Nantes are attempting an ambitious double-swoop return for two former players in 28-year-olds Adrien Trebel and Sofiane Hanni.
Hanni, an Algerian international, spent 2009-11 with Nantes, and the current Spartak Moscow winger is apparently the subject of an attempt by his former club to sign him on loan with an option to buy.
The same goes for Anderlecht midfielder Adrien Trebel, who the Nantes board see as a stop-gap for the likely departure of current captain Valentin Rongier this summer. Franck Kita, the club’s current owner’s son, is running things for the Nantes summer window for the moment, and is counting on his excellent relationship with the player’s agent, Mogi Bayat, to get the deal over the line.
Trebel too would be joining initially on loan but with an option.
