Fulham are reportedly keeping tabs on Nice defensive midfield anchorman Coulibaly Kafoumba.

The Ivory Coast international, who is likely to be named in the Elephants’ squad for next year’s African Cup of Nations, has been performing well for the French side this season after six months out injured.

Kafoumba, 24, is rumoured to have attracted interest from a number of English clubs and is delighted with the link.

“I am very happy with my form, it has been a great week for me,” he told Skysports.com.

“I scored my first goal for Nice, a beautiful goal, and my wife gave birth to my first child.

“My dream is to be included in the squad for the African nations cup, and for the World Cup, and maybe also to play in the Premier League in the near future.

“To hear that I am being watched by clubs from England is fantastic – It is a great week for me, first goal, first child and being linked with clubs from England.”

A product of the famous ASEC Mimosas club academy in his homeland, Coulibaly had stints in Belgium and Thailand before joining French Ligue 2 outfit Bastia in 2007, and later moving to Nice.

He has also been linked with a move to Wigan in the past as well as the speculation surrounding a Craven Cottage transfer.
