Nantes have scored 24 goals in Ligue 1 this season and Emiliano Sala has scored 50 percent of them.

The Argentine forward’s goalscoring form for his club hasn’t gone unnoticed as France Football claims he is attracting interest from the Premier League.

Even before the start of the season, Watford and Brighton & Hove Albion were looking at the 28-year-old.

He is now on the radar of Cardiff City, Fulham, West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Southampton with offers expected between €15-€20m with bonuses.

Palace had been the side most linked, but France Football believe Cardiff are pushing ahead.

It’s claimed the Bluebirds ‘seem the hottest’ in Sala’s case and discussions have already taken place about the possibility of the player’s transfer in January.

The attacker’s contract with Nantes expires in 2020 and France Football mentions it’s the last opportunity for them to cash in, if he doesn’t sign a new deal.
