Cape Town - Sundowns have received a first bid of the transfer window from Ligue 1 side Montpellier for in-demand winger Keagan Dolly, according to reports in the French media.

As reported by KickOff, the French side have lodged a €500k (R7.2-million) offer for the South Africa international.

However it remains to be seen if the Brazilians will be willing to entertain the offer, having rejected a €800k bid from Greek Super League side Olympiakos last season.

The 2012 Ligue 1 Champions, are known for picking up young and relatively unknown talent and will definitely be keen on adding the 23-year-old CAF Champions League winner to their squad - after being priced out for their main target, Cameroon international Ambroise Oyongo from MLS side Montreal Impact.

Dolly has scored 10 goals and registered 10 assists in 61 Premiership games for the South African Champions, since returning to the club from Ajax Cape Town in 2015.
