The Daily Star says they are preparing a £10m bid for Berbatov.
They want the Manchester United striker to be their marquee summer signing. The French club have money to burn after their £150m takeover by Qatar Investments.
It makes them potentially huge spenders in the European transfer market. And Berbatov fits their bill according to new boss Leonardo.
It is understood members of the club's new Middle East board held a meeting at the weekend with Berbatov's agent Emile Dantchev.
And now they are preparing to make a formal offer to United for the 30-year-old who could be surplus to requirements.
