French Ligue 1 side Lille are showing interest in Inter Milan full-back Yuto Nagatomo, according to Canal +.
New les Dogues coach Herve Renard is determined to lure the Japanese defender to France and he could soon come forward with an official proposal.
It is believed that Inter are prepared to listen to offers for the 28-year-old given that he is no longer considered an important member of the squad.
Yuto Nagatomo has largely struggled for playing time last season, making just 14 Serie A appearances, and his four-year spell at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza is clearly drawing to a clause.
Lille are not the only top side interested in the experienced defender seeing that West Bromwich and Schalke are in the mix as well.
Yuto Nagatomo joined Inter from Cesena following a successful six-month loan spell and has since made a total of 108 Serie A appearances, scoring 9 goals.
