JEAN-MICHAEL SERI

Fulham have sensationally beaten Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Roma and Napoli in the race to land the Nice midfielder, according to Sky Sport Italy.

The Ivory Coast star, 26, is reportedly set to join the Cottagers in a deal worth £20 million (Dh86m), plus add-ons.

Seri’s capture would represent a sizeable coup for the newly-promoted Premier League club who appear to be going from strength to strength under boss Slavisa Jokanovic.

Sources close to Seri have revealed that he sees the Whites as the perfect side in which to kick-start his career in England and wants to be based in London.

GRZEGORZ KRYCHOWIAK

Liverpool are interested in signing the Paris Saint-Germain man to bolster the midfield ranks at Anfield, The Sun reports.

Following the acquisition of versatile Brazilian Fabinho, Jurgen Klopp believes the Poland international – who spent last season on loan at West Brom – can be deployed as a useful squad option.

With doubts over whether Nabil Fekir will arrive this summer, 28-year-old Krychowiak is available quickly having been told in no uncertain terms that he doesn’t have a future at the Parc des Princes.

The Merseysiders also want another body in the engine room following Emre Can’s free transfer departure to Juventus.

JAMAAL LASCELLES

Newcastle will continue to fight to keep their club captain at St James’ Park, Sky Sports News reports.

The Toon, this week, rebuffed a £25 million (Dh121m) offer from West Ham for the centre-back’s services while Everton have also been rumoured to be preparing a big-money offer.

Lascelles, 24, who penned a long-term contract to stay on Tyneside last November – keeping him with Rafael Benitez until 2023 – has yet to make any recent statement on his future.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are desperate to keep hold of the talent as they seek to build on last season’s 10th place finish.

Southampton are closing in on deals for Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn and Borussia Monchengladbach defender Jannik Vestergaard, Press Association Sport understands.

After narrowly avoiding relegation from the Premier League last season, Saints have bolstered their squad with the addition of Stuart Armstrong and Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Mark Hughes‘ side are still active in the transfer market, with a permanent deal for highly-rated City goalkeeper Gunn edging towards completion.

The 22-year-old impressed on loan at Norwich last term and was part of England’s World Cup training camp, having been involved with the senior team for the first time last November.

Southampton are also looking to bring in imposing defender Vestergaard from the Bundesliga.

Part of the Denmark squad that reached the last-16 in Russia, the 25-year-old would appear a timely addition to a side yet to bring in a defender since Virgil van Dijk’s world-record move to Liverpool.

Southampton’s only January signing was the club-record deal for Monaco striker Guido Carrillo – a player that has already been shipped out to Leganes on loan.

Dusan Tadic ended his four-year stint at St Mary’s to join Ajax, while questions remain over the future of Fraser Forster and Sofiane Boufal.
