Significant transfer update emerges about 28-y/o Fulham man

Published

on

It has been revealed that Fulham have rejected two bids from Lyon for their 28-year-old central midfielder Jean Michael Seri, according to reports in FootMercato.

Reports suggest that Lyon have submitted two formal offers for the 28-year-old, with the first coming in at €11 million, and the second an improved €12 million.

It is thought that Fulham have rejected both bids from the Ligue 1 club, as the offers do not meet the club’s valuation of the Ivory Coast international.

The Ivorian is currently on a season-long loan from Fulham at Turkish SuperLig side Galatasaray.

It is believed that the Cottagers want a sum of €18 million for Seri for a deal to be considered – as it is the clause in Galatasaray’s contract that makes the deal permanent.

Which former Fulham player is this?

On the contrary, Eurosport and Get French Football News have reported that Fulham will not consider any bids for Seri unless Galatasaray cancel the loan arrangement between the two clubs.

Seri has made a total of eighteen appearances for Galatasaray so far this season, scoring one goal.

The 28-year-old remains one of Fulham’s most expensive signings at the club. The Ivorian signed for the Cottagers in the summer of 2018 from OGC Nice for a fee of £20 million+.

The Verdict

Although it is a significant development concerning Jean Michael Seri, the offers from Lyon will likely not lead to anything happening, with Galatasaray’s loan deal the stumbling block for the French club.

Even so, €12 million represents a massive loss for Fulham, and on that basis, the club would’ve likely rejected the same bid even if Seri was not at the Turkish club.
