Jean-Michel Seri looks set to return to France with Lyon or Monaco this summer, as Le10 Sport claims that Fulham are willing to accept a cut-price fee for the Ivorian international.
Plenty of eyebrows were raised on both sides of The Channel when Seri, who had come so close to joining Barcelona in the summer of 2017, was unveiled by Premier League newcomers Fulham in July of last year.
One of the most highly-rated central midfielders in Europe, the Cottagers paid a club record £25 million for the Nice talisman.
But it is fair to say Seri didn’t live up to his price-tag or those lofty expectations during a miserable season at Craven Cottage. A player who shone in France looked lightweight and disinterested in London, making just 27 starts as Fulham were relegated from the top flight in humiliating fashion.
And it seems only a matter of time before Seri’s time in the English capital comes to an end. Le10 Sport points out that he has no interest in playing Championship football for Fulham, who could be willing to accept as little as £13 million.
The report adds that a return to France is ‘close’ with Lyon and Monaco emerging as potential destinations.
