Various outlets, including Nigerian site Today and Turkish outlet Milliyet (as cited by Hammy End), are claiming Fulham are interested in Fenerbahce man Bright Osayi-Samuel.

The winger has only been with the Turkish Super Lig side for six months, joining from QPR in January. However, after netting only one goal and providing one assist in 19 games, it is claimed he is being lined up for a return to the Championship.

The Nigerian star departed the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium after a lengthy transfer saga. A host of top sides were said keen, but it was Fenerbahce who secured a deal.
