Fulham’s pursuit of Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos appears to be unravelling.

This morning’s Mundo Deportivo carries a report confirming that Marco Silva has identified the Argentinian as one of his top targets as Fulham look to strengthen squad ahead of their second season in the Premier League. The recently-appointed Sevilla director of football, Victor Orta – formerly of Leeds United – has sanctioned discussions with the Cottagers but Fulham appear to have baulked at Sevilla’s valuation of their two-time Europa League winner.

This is another problem, of course. According to Mundo Deportivo, Ocampos is not keen on playing outside of Spain, having struggled when he went on loan to Ajax last term as the intended replacement for the Manchester United-bound Antony. Sky Sports still suggest that discussions are ongoing, but the Whites will apparently need to increase their bid to land the 28 year-old. The Guardian also reports that Wolves are interested in reuniting Ocampos with his former manager, Julen Lopetegui.
