Bordeaux chasing Paris FC forward Morgan Guilavogui

Sud-Ouest report this afternoon that Bordeaux are looking to bring in Paris FC forward Morgan Guilavogui, with a initial offer of €2m having been rejected.

The brother of Josuha, who spent time on loan with Les Girondins in the second half of their ultimately ill-fated Ligue 1 campaign last season, Guilavogui has eight goals in the second tier this campaign.

Bordeaux president Gérard Lopez had indicated to the outlet on Sunday that the team was looking to strengthen its attacking options – the 24-year-old Guinea international found the net 14 times in all competitions last season, and is under contract until the end of next season.

Paris FC, however, have no intention of letting go of Guilavogui, much less to a potential promotion rival. The team from the capital currently sit in eighth, six points behind second-place Bordeaux, with only the top two teams in the division earning promotion to the top flight this season.
