The French outfit revealed further that Kalu’s move is still subject to the signing of “all administrative documents” from both parties.
The 19-year-old is seen as a suitable replacement for Brazilian star, Malcolm, who completed a move to La Liga team, Barcelona late July.
Kalu was one of Gent’s best players last season, scoring seven goals in 32 league appearances, assisting a further six in the Belgian first division.
