Bournemouth winger Max Gradel will turn down interest from Sunderland to seal a move to either Nantes or Toulouse, according to reports.
Bournemouth winger Max Gradel has his sights set on a move to France, according to reports.
The 29-year-old is said to be interested in departing the Vitality Stadium after a 2016-17 season in which he failed to start a single Premier League game.
According to The Chronicle, Gradel is high on Sunderland's transfer wish list having played under new Black Cats boss Simon Grayson for Leeds United in the 2010-11 campaign.
However, the report suggests that the Ivory Coast star is more likely to head for Ligue 1, with Nantes and Toulouse both said to be interested in his services.
Gradel, who has also played for Leicester City and Saint-Etienne, only signed a new four-year contract at Bournemouth last July.
