In search of a playmaker, Stade Rennais is studying the profile of Gaël Kakuta, at the end of his contract at RC Lens.
After a convincing season under the colors of RC Lens (11 goals and 5 assists in 35 Ligue 1 games), Gaël Kakuta still has not extended his contract in favor of his training club. If the wish of the 29-year-old playmaker remains to be part of the long-term with the Sang et Or, this does not prevent other Ligue 1 clubs from trying their luck. According to information collected by Football365 Africa, Stade Rennais is one of the courtiers of the Congolese international, free on June 30. The team coached by Bruno Génésio is looking for a experienced organizing midfielder, likely to compensate for the departure of Clément Grenier and bring inspiration to the midfield. The recent winner of the Marc-Vivien Foé Prize for the best African player in Ligue 1 would tick all the boxes, even if RC Lens keeps control in this matter.
