Napoli are interested in a move for Fulham midfielder Jean-Michaël Seri and have made a formal approach to the club.

Seri is currently on loan at Galatasaray in Turkey but has struggled to rediscover his best form at the club after a similarly disappointing first year in England with Fulham last year.

There have been suggestions that he could be recalled and sent elsewhere and according to Radio Punto Nuovo, relayed by Calcio Napoli 24, Napoli are ready to give him that option.

They report that the Serie A side have made a ‘formal approach’ to Fulham to take the midfielder on loan.

Fulham want €18m for Seri, to get him off their books permanently.

Napoli can’t do that sort of deal though, and instead, their idea was to sign the midfielder on an ‘onerous’ loan until the end of the season and include a purchase option, rather than an obligation in the deal.

Whether that would be acceptable to Fulham isn’t mentioned, but Napoli are not the only side interested in the midfielder.

Lyon are also keen and, unlike, the Italians, have submitted an offer to buy Seri outright, although it isn’t clear if they have matched the €18m asking price at this stage.

With Fulham keen on a sale, though, they would presumably be ahead in the race for Seri’s signature at this moment in time.

While Seri looks like heading out, one man who may arrive is left-back Maxime Poundjé, with Sud-Ouest claiming Fulham are one of four clubs his representatives have contacted about a move.
