Fulham have expressed an interest in French midfielder Valentin Rongier, according to GWL sources.
The defensive midfielder, who is currently contracted to French Ligue 1 side Nantes, is attracting the attention of a number of English clubs including Birmingham City and Derby County.
Rongier suffered a career-threatening anterior cruciate ligament injury in October 2015, meaning he missed the majority of the 2015-16 season, but played an instumental part in the French side’s campaign last year, making 31 appearances for the club.
At just 22 years of age, Rongier has his best years ahead of him and is thought to be keen on an opportunity to challenge for promotion to the Premier League.
It’s thought that a fee in the region of £3m would be required to convince Nantes to part with one of their prized assets.
