Sunderland target Clement Chantome has been linked with a move to La Liga outfit Malaga.

The Black Cats have watched Bordeaux midfielder Chantome on several occasions over recent months after they have been keeping tabs on the French market since the huge impact of January imports Wahbi Khazri and Lamine Kone.

Chantome's contract at Bordeaux - the former club of Khazri - expires this summer and he announced last month that he will leave the Ligue 1 outfit.

But reports in France indicated that Chantome's next move could be to Spain, with Malaga interested in the 28-year-old.
