L’Équipe report that Ligue 1 side AS Monaco have had a €12m offer rejected by Reims for 22-year-old central defender Axel Disasi.
SDR want at least €15m in order to part with a player who now has less than 12 months remaining on his existing contract. The ex-Paris FC talent is also receiving intense interest from Rennes and Southampton, but prefers the Monaco project and has already agreed provisional contract terms with ASM.
Their opening bid has been turned down, notably because Southampton offered €15m, and Reims have no intention of accepting a lower amount. Talks could accelerate on Thursday as Monaco look to close a deal.
