Last updated : 01 December 2007 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today been linked with Racing Ferrol's French midfielder Steven Cohen.

The 21-year-old is seen as a replacement for Hibs' Guillaume Beuzelin if he doesn't sign a contract extension to stay at Easter Road beyond the summer.

Cohen has scored 9 goals in his 33 games for the Spanish Second division side and is attracting a lot of interest.

Wigan, Liverpool, Marseille, Real Betis and Deportivo La Coruna are all said to be monitoring the player and could yet make a move, all but ruling out any chance of Hibs landing him.

Hibs boss John Collins is reportedly keen on bringing the player to Easter Road in a £100,000 deal, but if any of the reported clubs show an interest, Hibs couldn't compete with the wages on offer.

Cohen has admitted that he would be interested in a move to
Scotland by saying:

Scotland is an attractive league and I will listen to all offers that are presented to me."
