Wolverhampton Wanderers went into the summer with fans and neutrals alike tipping them to take the Premier League by storm next season, but fellow newly promoted side Fulham have arguably made a bigger splash in the transfer market.
The Cottagers have signed Andre Schurrle, Jean Michel Seri and Aleksandar Mitrovic among others, and are now allegedly looking to bring in a 17-capped international.
Football London reports that Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic wants a player who can act as a back-up to the influential Kevin McDonald at the base of the midfield and Ole Selnaes certainly fits the bill.
But TEAMtalk are claiming that Ligue 1 outfit St Etienne have rejected Fulham’s attempts to sign Selnaes on a season-long loan. Les Verts would, however, consider selling the Norwegian if the price is right, and it is reported that Fulham would be willing to buy him outright.
It is unknown, however, how much it would cost to sign Selnaes, who TEAMtalk believe has caught the eye of several Premier League clubs after some impressive performances in France. He started 23 Ligue 1 games last season, picking up nine yellow cards along the way.
According to Transfermarkt, he is worth about £2.7 million but you can expect that St Etienne will demand far more than that.
