French first division side Nantes wants to sign two Ivorian players currently playing in Belgium, Didier Zokora is with Genk and Arthur Boka at Beveren.

Central defender Zokora is seen as the ideal replacement for the Colombian Mario Yepes, who is on his way to Spanish side Valencia.

However contract details between the club and the 25-year-old still need are yet to be finalised.

Boka's wife is from the Nantes region and therefore is more likely to settle well at the club.

The 21-year-old could finally end the clubs search for a wide right player.

Both players are graduates of the Jean-Marc Guillou academy in Abidjan.

The duo will join another graduate of the Guillou's academy, Ivorian Gilles Yapi Yapo, who joined Nantes in the recent transfer window.
