Sunderland keeping tabs on French starlet

TalkSport reports that the Black Cats are keen to bring in the 19-year-old in the January transfer window.

Sunderland face competition from Benfica, who reportedly have already held talks with the youngster’s agent.

Bakambu’s contract with Sochaux is set to expire in the summer of 2013, but it is expected the youngster will be allowed to leave the club for around £3million.
