SERI-OUSLY

Have Fulham just pulled off the signing of the summer with Jean-Michel Seri coup?

Fulham aren’t wasting any time settling into Premier League life.

Barely six weeks after clinching promotion on that dramatic play-off final day at Wembley, they’re already rubbing shoulders with the big boys.

That’s because they’ve announced today, against all odds, the signing of Nice’s Ivory Coast midfielder Jean-Michael Seri for roughly £35m.

The Premier League new boys have beaten a host of European sides, including Barcelona and Chelsea, to the signing of the combative midfielder.

Fulham have been looking for extra grit in the middle of their talented team and it is a major coup to land the player who helped Nice to an eighth-placed finish in France.

Le Marchand is a surprise extra. He can play left back and centre half and will become part of Slavisa Jokanovic’s squad.

The 28-year-old was a key member of the Ligue 1 side last season having started 29 league matches and five in the Europa League.

Seri could be a real asset not only for Fulham, but also for your Dream Team this season and we will profile him in the coming days.

You can already pre-register for the Dream Team game ahead of its launch next week.
