30-year-old Moroccan defender Abdelhamid El Kaoutari is heavily linked with a move to newly promoted French Ligue Un side Racing Club de Lens, kick442.com can report.
FootMercato says Lens officials of RC Lens are keen on acquiring the services of the AS Nancy man who will be a free agent after June 30th 2020.
The experienced Montpellier-born central defender began his career in 2008 with his boyhood Montpellier side and has gone on to represent US Palermo,Reims, Wydad Casablanca amongst others.
Abdelhamid made 24 appearances in all competitions for AS Nancy in the just ended season having joined them in January 2019 from Wydad Casablanca.
Lens are back in the topflight for the first time since suffering administrative relegation from the French Ligue 1 Conforma in the 2014/2015 season.
Their interest in the former Reims center half with 171 appearances in the competition is understandable as the player provides the kind of experience needed for stability in the competition.
A deal for the defender is likely as Nancy haven’t approached the Moroccan with a new contract offer.
Having represented France at youth level, Abdelhamid has gone on to win 13 caps for the Atlas Lions of Morocco.
He joins Congolese forward Gael Kakuta of Amiens who is also on the wishlists of the legendary club.
