Three Turkish sides are competing to sign Fulham midfielder Jean Michael Seri on a permanent basis, according to reports this morning.

The Ivorian midfielder, who is not in Marco Silva’s first team plans at Craven Cottage, is expected to leave Fulham this summer after spells on loan with Galatasaray and Bordeaux in recent seasons. The Turkish giants are keen to welcome him back to Istanbul and have already entered into negotiations to sign the 30 year-old earlier this summer.

Reports from France this morning identify newly promoted side Adana Demirspor as another potential destination, with Trabzonspor also holding an interest in signing Seri as he enters the final year of his Fulham contract. A return to France is also not of the question as Lile consider the playmaker a potential replacement for Boubakary Soumare.

Fulham are keen to get Seri’s significant pay packet off their wage bill before the start of the new Championship season next month. He has made just 36 appearances for the club – scoring a single goal – since signing from Nice in a deal reportedly worth £27m in July 2018.
