Birmingham and Burnley battle for French starlet Frederic Nimani

Monaco striker Frederic Nimani is believed to be the centre of many managers attention this January, with both Birmingham and Burnley interested in the youngster.

Nimani, 21, is reportedly in England discussing terms with several clubs and the 6ft 4in striker is expected to make a move to the Premier League in the near future however, his destination is unknown.

The striker, who scored 7 goals in his first full season with the French club, has fallen out of favour this season following an argument with Monaco manager Guy Lacombe and is keen on a move elsewhere. Nimani’s agent, Willie McKay has underlined the target man’s willingness to move to England. McKay has said:

“Frederic is over here in England now and I am speaking to four Premier League clubs about him. Monaco are willing to let him leave and Frederic is keen to move on in search of regular first-team football. He is 6ft 4in, strong, can play with both feet and is good in the air so I think he would be a major success in English football.”
