Saber Khelifa: Striker's 13 goals last season goals kept Evian in Ligue 1

The 26-year-old has not reported for pre-season training with Evian while he tries to resolve paperwork issues for his family in order for them to join him in France.

The Tunisia international, recently linked with Southampton, netted 13 times for Evian last season, his second with the club.

"I don't want any trial of strength with Evian," Khelifa told L'Equipe.

"Even if there were offers, the priority is Evian. First contact? There is Montpellier, it is the only proposition I have had and it is a great club."

Khelifa's goals kept Evian just above the relegation zone in Ligue 1 last season, but he has yet to re-join the squad while he attempts to ensure his family can join him.

"I've already spent over 18 months without my family, I don't want it to go on," he added.

"Everyone at the club knows I am in Tunisia and I will not come back without my wife and son."
