Hurriyet reporter Ali Naci Kucuk claims Fulham midfielder Jean Michael Seri is keen to join Galatasaray, but the Turkish side and Fulham have yet to agree on a deal.
It’s been widely reported Seri wants a return to Galatasaray after spending the last season on loan with them, and Ali Naci Kucuk reports they’ve reached an agreement with the player. He will reportedly receive €2.5m a season, a figure likely to be after tax.
However, Fulham want to insert a mandatory redemption clause which is said to be set at €8m, along with a €2m loan fee. The Hurriyet journalist believes the deal is unlikely to happen at this stage as these terms don’t suit Galatasaray.
Given there’s still time left in this transfer window, Gala could still complete a loan deal for the Ivorian and their manager Fatih Terim has publicly stated that he wants to see the 29-year-old in his team this season.
Seri made 37 appearances in all competitions for Galatasaray last season, scoring 2 goals. His contract at Craven Cottage will expire at the end of June 2022.
