Arsenal and West Ham have also been credited with an interest in the player previously, but it is yet to be seen how serious their pursuit is.

Fulham have also confirmed the signing of Seri ’s former Nice team-mate, the 28-year-old “He’s been at the very top of our target list for a long time,” said Tony Khan, the Fulham sporting director. Meanwhile, Newcastle United have re- signed the Chelsea winger Kenedy on a season-long loan.
