Fulham back in for Osayi-Samuel?

Reports from Turkey today are suggesting that Fulham are back in for Bright Osayi-Samuel and are hoping to conclude a deal for the Fenerbahce winger before the end of the summer transfer window.

Marco Silva was linked with a move for the former QPR man immediately after he took over from Scott Parker at Craven Cottage, but the two clubs reportedly could not agree on a transfer fee. That problem still remains, according to Sporx, with Fulham prepared to offer around £1.7m and Fenerbahce believed to holding out for around £4.2m.

The Nigerian international moved to Turkey in January after spending four years with QPR. He has made 23 appearances for Fenerbache to date, scoring a single goal.

Fulham fancy Osayi-Samuel

New Fulham head coach Marco Silva is interested in making Fenerbahce winger Bright Osayi-Samuel his first signing, according to reports this afternoon.

Silva, who reportedly turned down the Fenerbahce job to take over from Scott Parker at Craven Cottage last week, is currently working remotely in London as he completes his quarantine period after arriving from Portugal. He will offer the former QPR winger a chance to return to England after half a season in Turkey, where he made nineteen appearances scoring a single goal.

The 23 year-old is understood to be keen to become a first-team regular with Fener, although the club are open to a sale should Fulham present an attractive offer. Osayi-Samuel scored thirteen goals in 113 appearances during four years at QPR having come through the youth ranks at Blackpool.
