Swansea City are understood to be keen on signing Nice defender Timothee Kolodziejczak.
The Premier League club are thought to see the 22-year-old as a replacement for Ben Davies, who recently joined Tottenham Hotspur.
However, a number of other top-flight teams are chasing the Frenchman, according to Sky Sports News.
West Ham United, Southampton and Queens Park Rangers are among the sides to have been linked with Kolodziejczak so far this summer.
Nice coach Claude Puel recently claimed that he expects the youngster to leave the Ligue 1 club before the end of the transfer window.
