The centre-back could follow the footsteps of brother Paul by making a switch to England, with two clubs seemingly hot on his heels
Sportmasta understands that the Saint-Etienne centre-back, whose brother Paul made a world record move to Manchester United in the summer, is open to the idea of moving to England.
The north east looks his likeliest destination, with Sunderland eager to add the defender to their ranks as Lamine Kone nears a switch to Everton. Meanwhile, Hull City have reportedly tabled a bid worth €7.5 million for the former Sedan man as they aim to add numbers to their thin squad before the close of the transfer period.
If a move were to take place, it would offer the 26-year-old the opportunity to play against his younger brother for the first time in a competitive match.
Unlike Paul, who turns out for France, Florentin plays his international football for Guinea alongside his twin, Mathias.
