Crystal Palace could face competition from Napoli and Inter Milan in their pursuit to sign Jean Michael Seri from Fulham.
According to exclusive claims from Italian news outlet Calciomercato.it, the Serie A duo have established respective interests in recruiting the midfielder, who could be available this summer.
Seri joined Fulham in a big-money deal from OGC Nice last year after impressing in Ligue 1 for several seasons.
However, the Ivorian flattered to deceive, and it seems Scott Parker’s side could cut their losses on the under-performing midfielder ahead of their return to the Championship.
Palace had been linked with a move to sign Seri, but it seems they will need to fend off stiff opposition from two Italian heavyweights.
Roy Hodgson has a plethora of midfield options at his disposal. Nevertheless, he appears to be on the lookout for additional quality as he bids to lead the Eagles to a successful campaign in the Premier League next term.
Other midfielders who Palace should consider targeting
Meite had a fine season at Torino. He would be an astute signing for Palace ahead of next season.
Bennacer was excellent despite Empoli’s relegation from Serie A. He would be a smart signing.
Phillips is an energetic midfielder who has outgrown the Championship. Palace should pursue a move for the Leeds star.
Gbamin is an underrated midfielder who has regularly impressed for Mainz. He would be a clever addition.
