FULHAM are said to be interested in Dundee midfielder Gavin Rae, but face competition from Ipswich, Leicester and Middlesbrough.
The 23-year-old Scottish international has created a name for himself in Scotland as one of their best young midfielders, and, together with Barry Ferguson of Rangers, is seen as the future of the national team north of the border.

However, he may well be tempted to turn his back on his homeland and move to the Premiership, where there are a host of clubs queuing up for his signature.

Fulham and Ipswich are thought to be leading the race with Jean Tigana showing particular interest.

Leicester and Middlesbrough are likely to join the bidding which could reach at least £3 million, but Boro have other targets in Scotland with Aberdeen`s Kevin McNaughton the preferred target for the Teessiders.

Dundee manager Ivano Bonetti has always stated that he does not want his best players to leave Dens Park, but he needs money to bolster his squad having just lost star-striker Claudio Caniggia to Rangers for a nominal fee.
