Nice midfielder Kafoumba Coulibaly has admitted it is flattering to be linked with top English sides.
Fulham have reportedly been keeping tabs on the Ivorian for some time, while Birmingham and Hull City are also understood to have entered the chase.
Coulibaly is happy for Nice to decide on his future but finds the idea of one day playing in the Premier League appealing.
"I started the season very well after being out for a long time and it is good to hear there are clubs interested in me," he told skysports.com.
"Fulham are a very good team. I saw them play against Manchester United and they were very good. Why not?
"But I am open and it all depends on Nice where I am at the moment."
Coulibaly, who has one international cap to his name, has been overlooked for the Ivory Coast squad ahead of next month's African Cup of Nations.
But he is not too concerned, saying: "I am happy, I am in the reserve squad for the national team and I still have many years in football to play in a big tournament."
