Fulham join battle for Nice striker Alassane Plea

Fulham have joined the battle for Nice striker Alassane Plea.

The Sun says West Ham and Fulham are locked in a £25 million battle for Plea.

Hammers have been tracking goal machine Plea for months and have been trying to raise funds to buy him.

Now Fulham have stepped into the race and want to offer the cash up front as owner Tony Khan makes a few bold moves for the Premier League new boys.

Plea, 25, would be a perfect foil for Fulham's other target Aleksandar Mitrovic who they want in a full time deal from Newcastle.

Hammers are likely to match any offer agreed and Plea is waiting on word about flying into London for talks on personal terms with either or possibly both this week.
