Fulham are expected to finalise a deal for Nice's Jean Michaël Seri over the coming days after the midfielder agreed to put pen to paper on a four-year contract with the Premier League newcomers.
The 26-year-old had attracted interest from a number of European powerhouses this summer but Fulham's proactive approach is understood to have helped secure the Ivory Coast international before his release clause expires on Sunday.
Breaking | Jean Michaël Seri will sign a 4-year contract with Fulham in the coming hours, according to Nice-Matin.
According to France Football, via Nice-Matin, Seri is expected to become the Cottagers' first signing of the summer following the midfielder's decision to sign a four-year deal with the club.
Fulham are in advanced talks with Nice over the final details of the transfer which could turn out to be a double swoop by the club as they are looking to add defender Maxime Le Marchand to the deal for a total fee in the region of £30m - as per Sky Sports.
Both Seri and Le Marchand are awaiting to undergo medicals with Fulham once final negotiations with Nice have concluded.
