With just a few days to the commencement of the January transfer window, Samuel Kalu could be leaving Ligue 1 for a new adventure in the Bundesliga or La Liga.
The Nigerian international was an integral part of the Bordeaux squad when he first joined the team on 6 August 2018 after signing a five-year deal.
But Kalu has lost his starting spot this term, starting four of the last 11 matches played by Bordeaux in Ligue 1.
According to Eurosport journalist Manu Lonjon via his twitter handle on Sunday, he says Kalu and Guinea’s François Kamano are two players being considered surplus to requirement.

Kalu’s contract expires in 2023 but could leave before it runs out if reports are true. The 21-year-old joined Bordeaux from Gent and has made over 40 appearances for Les Girondins.
