Fulham have turned down two offers from Lyon for their midfielder Jean Michael Seri.

The Ivorian international, currently on loan at Galatasaray for the season, had been linked with a return to France over the summer. There has been speculation in the Turkish press that Galatasaray are willing to end Seri’s underwhelming loan early and Lyon have sought to take advantage of that uncertainty.

According to Foot Mercato, Lyon had seen bids of around £9m and then £10m rejected by Fulham, who are believed to be holding out for something closer to £15m.
