Cardiff City will reportedly re-visit the possibility of signing Nice midfielder Adrien Tameze in the summer.
That’s according to Wales Online, who write that the Bluebirds attempted and failed to sign him in January.
The 25-year-old has been on the Bluebirds’ radar for some time now, with manager Neil Warnock understood to be a big admirer of the player.
Tameze can operate in the centre of midfield, either slightly deeper as a holding player or in a more traditional role in the heart of the team.
The Frenchman has been a regular in Patrick Viera’s team this campaign, and his close relationship with the ex-Arsenal enforcer is thought to be one of the reasons Cardiff could not get a deal over the line in the winter window.
However, the owners of the Ligue 1 club are resigned to cashing in on him at some point, and the Bluebirds’ previous talks put them at the front of the queue.
Warnock is looking for midfield reinforcements following the news that club stalwart Aron Gunnarsson will leave for Qatari outfit Al-Arabi at the end of the season, regardless of where the South Wales club finish in the table.
Watford are also tracking Tameze, who is likely to cost in the region of £10m.
