Rennes are interested in Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.
France Football says Rennes chief Olivier Letang has made a move for the Argentine.
Unhappy with their goalkeeper stocks, Letang is actively seeking to make a new keeper signing in January.
And his search has led to Martinez, with contact already established ahead of the winter transfer window opening.
Martinez is strictly third choice at Arsenal and could be open to a move to Rennes if assured of first-choice status.
