Nantes and two as yet unnamed Turkish clubs are in the running to sign Nigerian goalkeeping legend Vincent Enyeama, sources close to the player have confirmed to KweséESPN.

Enyeama, along with 10 other players, have been left in limbo by new Lille OSC manager Marcelo Bielsa, sparking interest from both within and outside France.

New Nantes manager Claudio Ranieri is said to be an admirer of the 33-year-old Nigerian and is keen to bring him over to France's third most successful club.

Interest in the goalkeeper has also come from Turkey, where at least two clubs have offered to give the goalkeeper a big payday to move to the Super Lig.
