Sala has registered 48 goals in 130 games over four seasons since joining the French club in 2015.

A product of Bordeaux’s youth academy, the Santa Fe-born hitman also spent time on loan at Orleans, Niort and Caen before completing a permanent move to Nantes.

He had attracted interest from other Premier League clubs including Fulham, but it appears Cardiff lead the race.

Neil Warnock’s side sit one point and one place above the Premier League drop zone after winning promotion last season.

Having managed just 19 goals in 22 games as a team, Warnock is desperate for extra firepower to push the Bluebirds to safety.
