Fulham and Fenerbahce have joined Roma and Marseille in the race to sign Lille's France international midfielder Dimitri Payet.
Reports in France claim that there is growing interest from overseas in the 26-year-old ex-Nantes winger, who did well in his two recent appearances for his country against Uruguay and Brazil.
Fulham boss Martin Jol is on the lookout for a goalscoring midfielder and has been impressed by the Reunion-born star's tally of 31 league goals in his last three seasons.
Payet has two years left on his contract with Lille and could be unsettled after the recent departure of coach Rudi Garcia to Rome.
The Serie A club are also being linked but Marseille look like the main contenders for the signature of Payet and they can offer Champions League football.
Marseille president Vincent Labrune has apparently made the attacking midfielder one of his priorities for the summer.
