Fulham are seeking reinforcements having won promotion back to the Premier League following a four-year absence, and they are setting their sights high.
Slavisa Jokanovic's men are looking to bring in Ivorian international Seri, but have offered £18million for him – some way short of his £35million asking price, according to Sky Sports.
Seri hit two goals and six assists last season as he continues to impress in France, and Fulham are allegedly worried that they will be hijacked by a Premier League rival for his signature.
One club who should certainly be looking to swoop in and land Seri is Tottenham Hotspur, who may be in the market for a box-to-box midfielder this summer given questions over Mousa Dembele's future.
At 26, Seri is at a good age to come in and play Dembele's role, and he possesses the drive from midfield and skill on the ball to be an effective successor, without breaking the bank.
Fulham appear to be well down the line with their bid for Seri, but with Pochettino allegedly keen last summer and Spurs needing a midfielder more than they did back then, Tottenham should move to lure Seri to North London instead of allowing to move to the West of the capital.
