According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Fulham have won the race to sign Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri, rated at £27m by Transfermarkt.

Seri has been strongly linked with a move away from Nice over the last few months, but the speculation increased when he was left out of the French club’s pre-season training camp.

West Ham United have been linked with a move for the 18-time Ivory Coast international since the end of last season, although it appears that Fulham are now in the driving seat.

That said, the West Ham fans are not yet ready to give up hope when it comes to this deal.

It has been a busy summer for the Hammers, with Lukasz Fabianski, Issa Diop, Ryan Fredericks, Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko all moving to the London Stadium.

However, the club’s supporters still want Seri to arrive.

Fulham are seemingly going to pay £35m to sign Seri, and it remains to be seen whether West Ham make a late play to snatch the midfielder from their Premier League rivals.
