Dijon are making a concerted attempt to sign Fulham defender Maxime Le Marchand, according to French press reports this afternoon.

Regional daily newspaper Le Bien Public claims that the Owls are extremely interested in adding Le Marchand, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Royal Antwerp, to their backline and have held initial discussions with Fulham. The 31 year-old defender has made 48 appearances for Fulham since moving to Craven Cottage in the summer of 2018 and has another remaining on his current contract.

Dijon, who took Aboubakar Kamara on loan last season, were relegated from Ligue 1 last term and made a disappointing start to their Ligue 2 campaign on Monday night, losing 3-1 to Sochaux.
