Big Sam tracks French midfielder

Goulon, 22, is looking to join an English club after leaving French

outfit Le Mans in the summer. Allardyce could bring in Goulon to

bolster his squad outside of the transfer window as he is a free

agent. The player, who came through the Clairefontaine Academy in

France, joined Le Mans in the 2009 winter transfer window and made

a total of 37 appearances for the club.
