Brighton Albion winger Anthony Knockaert is a target for Championship club Fulham.

The relegated Londoners have made contact with the Seagulls over the French winger, an insider has confirmed to The Argus.

It follows a report in The Sun, claiming a £15 million fee has been discussed.

No bid has been made yet by Fulham for Knockaert, who still has three years left on his contract.

Knockaert signed a long term deal after helping fire Albion to promotion to the Premier League in 2016-17.

He scored 15 goals and was named the Championship player of the year.

Knockaert's fortunes have been mixed in two seasons with Albion in the Premier League.

He has scored five goals in 45 starts and 18 substitute appearances, the latest a spectacular winner at arch rivals Crystal Palace in March.

That was followed a month later by a red card for a horror tackle in the home drubbing by Bournemouth as the threat of relegation mounted under ex-manager Chris Hughton.

Knockaert was also sent-off at Everton the previous season.

Hughton's replacement Graham Potter has five wingers to choose from following the signing of Leandro Trossard from Genk, although Colombian Jose Izquierdo is a long-term absentee after a second knee cartilage operation.

Fulham are keen to make an immediate return to the Premier League under Scott Parker after finishing two places and ten points below Albion in 19th last season.

They have demonstrated their intent by retaining the services of Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, an Albion target during Hughton's reign.

Knockaert is expected to make his first appearance for Potter in the Seagulls' opening friendly in Austria against FC Liefering tomorrow afternoon.
