PARIS -- Renault is planning to replace CEO Thierry Bollore amid concerns that the executive's close ties to Carlos Ghosn could hinder the French automaker's alliance with Nissan Motor.

Both Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard and the French government, the automaker's top shareholder, support the switch, French newspaper Le Figaro reported Tuesday. The issue may be raised at a board meeting on Oct. 18.
