Jean Jeanvier

Club: Stade de Reims

Appearances: 30

Goals: 3

Assists: 0 Rating: N/A Value: £1.06m

Jean Jeanvier was voted the best defender in Ligue 2 last season and is now gaining interest in his services. Reims has finished outside the promotion places in Ligue 2, so it may be easier to get Jeanvier to move up a level. He is a strong, high quality defender who is comfortable on the ground. He managed to score 3 goals, and has a nice ability to pass from the back line. Fulham would have to beat out Huddersfield for his signature, which most likely means the fee would have to be over 4 million pounds, and a substantial wage package.

Jackson Irvine

Club: Burton Albion

Appearances: 42

Goals: 10

Assists: 0 Rating: 7.09 Value: £850k

Jackson Irvine was the best player on Burton last season, and his performances have led to interest from higher tier teams. Fulham will have to beat a host of championship clubs to secure the signing of a player in the mold of Stefan Johansen. Irvine would be a welcomed addition as the team seemed to lack a 4th midfielder of the same quality as the starting 3. Irvine would command a larage fee, probably in the range of 3-4 million pounds. Fulham could sweeten the deal by offloading Cauley Woodrow, and Burton seem interested in the U-21 international.

Scott Arfield

Club: Burnley

Appearances: 31

Goals: 1

Assists: 0 Rating: 6.55 Value: £2.55m

After another successful season avoiding relegation from the Premier League, Scott Arfield may be looking to move on, his deal is expiring next year, and he has seen his game time somewhat decline. Arfield would most likely be added to compensate for the potential loss of Ryan Sessegnon. Arfield has played fairly well in the Premier League, but could still be tempted by a move away. With his contract expiring, Fulham may be able to get him for a fee in the region of 2 million pounds.
