Lyon are thought to be willing to sell the Frenchman for a fee of £3million and a number of Premier League sides are weighing up a move for the forward. West Ham and Blackburn are thought to be keen on Piquionne, who scored 11 goals for Pompey, but Fulham are understood to be at the head of the queue for his signature. Fulham are believed to have contacted Lyon to discuss a possible move and are keen to tie up a deal to take him to Craven Cottage. Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson is keen to bolster his attacking options this summer and Piquionne is thought to be at the top of his wanted list.
