Cottagers risk missing out on Nice star

11th July 2018, 13:20 by Gareth Freeman

Fulham are in talks with Nice over a deal for Jean-Michael Seri but are concerned they may be outbid for the midfielder.

The Cottagers appear to be leading the race for the 26-year-old, who had appeared set to join Barcelona last summer, but have been unable to conclude a deal as yet.

Nice are keen to cash-in on Seri this summer as he is will fall out of contract next year and the 40m euros release clause in his deal is due to expire next week.

As such, Fulham are only prepared to pay around £18million for the midfielder, which is approximately £13m less than the release clause, and as the transfer is yet to be finalised they fear they could be outbid for the Ivory Coast international.

Seri has also been linked with the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea in the past, while there is also thought to be interest from Serie A and the Bundesliga but Seri's preference is understood to be a move to the Premier League.
