Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio is ready to move star striker Stephane Sessegnon away from the Stadium of Light, according to the Mirror.
The Italian is willing to part company with the Benin international if the price is right, with a figure of £8m being reported.
With £9m expected from Liverpool for goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, as well as a fee of £4m mooted for Hull City and Stoke City target Lee Cattermole, Di Canio is set to have the funds available to continue recruiting his new look squad.
Marseille, and Chinese sides Tianjin Teda and Shanghai Shenhua have inquired about Sessegnon, who has scored seventeen goals in eighty-three appearances since arriving at the Stadium of Light back in 2011.
Meanwhile, David Vaughn has drawn interest from Crystal Palace, while Ahmed Elmohamady is likely to make his loan move to Hull permanent.
With questions also surrounding the future of strikers Ji Dong Won, Connor Wickham and Danny Graham, the Black Cats starting XI next season is set to be unrecognisable from that that battled relegation last season.
