French Ligue 2 side Lens were in Belgium on Sunday to watch Daniel Opare play in the Pro League championship play-off against Genk.
The 23-year-old played 52 minutes for Standard Liege in the 2-2 draw and had scouts of the second-tier side monitoring him.
But Antoine Kombouareâ€™s side face stiff opposition from Marseille, Lille, Lyon or Metz who had representatives inside the Cristal Arena.
Lens are in firm position to qualify to the Ligue 1 next season as they lie second on the table.
Opare is out of contract in June and has already refused to sign a contract extension.
The versatile wing-back is expected to be named in Ghanaâ€™s squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Opare has made 21 Belgian Pro League appearances this season.
