Everton and AS Monaco linked with Fulham midfielder

Everton and AS Monaco are being linked with a move for Fulham midfielder Jean Michael Seri.

The 28-year-old could leave Craven Cottage on a permanent basis in the upcoming January transfer window, according to a report by Foot Mercato.

Seri is currently on loan at Galatasaray but is struggling for game time in the Turkish Super Lig.

The new Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is believed to be a fan of the midfielder and could move for him next month to add more options and depth into his newly inherited squad.

Seri, who is an Ivory Coast international with 28 caps to his name so far in his career, joined the London side in July 2018 from OGC Nice for a fee of around £25 million.

However, he could not prevent Fulham from being relegated from the Premier League in his first season at the club and he was subsequently shipped out on loan to Galatasaray over the summer. He still has three years left on his contract with Scott Parker’s side.

Seri started his career in his native country with Africa Sports d’Abidjan before he joined ASEC Mimosas as a youngster in 2010. Seri was signed on loan by FC Porto’s B team three years later and played 19 times for them in the Portuguese Segunda division.

He was then snapped up by Primeira Liga side Pacos de Ferreira and spent two years playing for them, making 68 appearances altogether.

Fulham saw off plenty of competition to land him last year and he was seen as a massive coup at the time.
