Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis could move to the Premier League before the close of the transfer window after Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed he has received offers.
Gomis has scored 36 goals in Ligue 1 for Lyon since joining from St Etienne three years ago, but could head to England before Friday's deadline.
Fulham have been strongly linked with a bid for the France international, but Lyon president Aulas did not disclose the identity of Gomis' admirers.
"There are concrete proposals from several clubs across the Channel," said Aulas at a press conference.
Cottagers boss Martin Jol is reported to be in the market for a new striker before the transfer window shuts after losing Pavel Pogrebnyak and Andrew Johnson over the summer.
With doubts over the future of Clint Dempsey, attacking reinforcements could arrive before the deadline and Fulham are also reported to have watched Evian forward Yannick Sagbo.
Gomis had the option of leaving Lyon back in July after the club accepted an offer, reported to be from Rubin Kazan, but the player decided to stay at Stade Gerland.
