Lyon have reportedly rejected Fulham’s opening bid for Bertrand Traore.
According to Foot Mercato, the English Premier League club are interested in signing the Burkina Faso international who is vauled at around €25 million by the French club.
The London club are reportedly among a host of Premier League teams keen on landing the 24-year-old with Brighton, Newcastle United, Everton and Crystal Palace also being linked with his services.
Traore joined Lyon from Chelsea on a permanent deal three years ago, having spent time on-loan at Vitesse Arnhem and Ajax Amsterdam.
He scored four goals in 35 appearances across all competitions for Lyon last season, but has struggled to break into the starting eleven of late and was an unused substitute in the club’s 4-1 win over Dijon last Friday.
Fulham booked their return to England’s top-flight following playoff victory over Brentford.
