Martin, 24, has been linked with several European sides, including Lyon, Valencia, Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal, but it appears Lille have won the race to secure his signature following the departure of Eden Hazard to Chelsea.

It is claimed a fee in the region of €10 million will change hands for the France international ahead of him putting pen to paper on personal terms this week.

Martin signed a contract extension with Sochaux, who finished 14th this season, last September, reportedly with a view to a 2012 transfer to allow the club to recoup a respectable fee for him.
