The ‘Gers have been linked with the South Africa international and now it has been said that the two clubs are in talks over the 27-year-old.
Crann says that Amiens are looking for between €4m (£3.6m) and €5m (£4.5m) for the player, who is currently stuck in his homeland due to a lack of flights.
This a step in the right direction for the ‘Gers – Zungu is a player with top-level experience in Ligue 1, whilst he has 24 caps to his name for his country.
However, €5m (£4.5m) could prove to be slightly too big a fee for the midfielder – that would cost them more than what they paid for Ianis Hagi and Alfredo Morelos combined, with the duo costing £3m and £1.08m respectively. Considering his position – Steven Gerrard’s squad is already congested in the middle of the park – he may not be worth that fee.

The struggles of getting back to France could also pose problems to any potential deal, so even though talks are ongoing, this could be a difficult one to secure.
