Lens in advanced talks for Talleres defender Facundo Medina

RC Lens are already busy in the transfer market and are closing in on Talleres defender Facundo Medina, according to RMC Sport.

The northern French club have won promotion to Ligue 1 and are working on a number of deals.

Medina, 21, could arrive for a fee in the region of €5m with talks reportedly at an advanced stage.

The Argentina under-23 international is a versatile defender capable of playing at centre-back or left-back.

He has played 18 times this season for Talleres and perfectly matches the profile sought by Lens coach Franck Haise.

Haise intends to use a 3-5-2 system next season and believes Medina will fit in perfectly as the left-sided centre-back.

He is the third Talleres player who could be heading to Europe this summer.

Nimes hope to see off competition for Paraguay midfielder Andres Cubas, having agreed a €3.5m fee with Talleres.

And star striker Nahuel Bustos is on the radar of Roma, Sevilla, Valencia, Real Sociedad and Bordeaux.

Lens have already dipped into the South American market by signing Venezuela number one Wuilker Farinez on loan with an option to buy.
